At least half of our children are prescribed at least one medicine each year. But the safety, effectiveness and dosage of these treatments are verified by adult clinical trials.
As we make headway in health informatics and data disciplines, we can grapple with this gap in paediatric-centred care.
At Melbourne Children’s Campus, we’ve entered a new era of embedded clinical trials. We randomly immerse these trials in care with shared resources and use routinely collected data to gather outcome measures through a centralised clinical research facility.
