WhiMSICAL is a global clinical trial inviting Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (WM) patients to provide their clinical data which will help advance current knowledge and understanding of this disease. CART-WHEEL (Center for Analysis of Rare Tumors) is a database designed to address some of the barriers facing effective research into rare cancers. Show your support and spread the word. If you are a WM patient or know of one, send them to www.cart-wheel.org and complete a simple survey. 

We would like to thank all members of the Haematology Clinical Research Network. “This project has been instrumental in increasing enrolment to clinical trials- a great breakthrough. It is our patients that are benefitting. Being referred to a hospital for a clinical trial is a team effort.” Roslyn Ristuccia

Second Place: The other winners are Judith Trotman and Roslyn Ristuccia of Australia who developed the app ClinTrial Refer, which increases the cross-referral of patients between hospitals by enhancing doctors' knowledge of current trials. The use of this app has increased trial recruitment by more than 50 percent. ClinTrial Refer enhances communication among oncologists, trial units and potential patients. "The ClinTrial Refer app allows networks of trial units to collaborate and contribute current listings about recruiting trials. The app is free to download and be-comes the clinician's best resource," Trotman said. "The main barrier to improving recruitment is doctors knowing where and how to refer patients. Now they can look up current information within seconds, during a consultation visit. Patients can gather the knowledge they need for decisions on all available treatment options at www.clintrial.org.au."

MTPConnect released a report in June 2017 providing an overview of the entire clinical trials scene in Australia. It highlights significant contribution that clinical trials makes to the Australian economy and provides an evaluation on Australia's strong competitive position in the world market.

The survey results are in, we would like to thank all those that participated. We hope to make this a regular exercise to help steer ClinTrial Refer in the right direction.
