Instructions for Industry

Clinical Trial Research Agreements (CTRAs)

Clinical trials in Australia mostly adopt the use of the Medicines Australia CTRA. As a private hospital provider, there are certain terms in the standard format CTRA that are difficult to apply in the private sector and, as a result, Ramsay utilises an amended form of the Medicines Australia CTRA with the Principal Investigator included as a signatory to the contract.

For a copy of a Ramsay amended CTRA or for further information, please contact ResearchGovernance@ramsayhealth.com.au.

Indemnity

All parties on the CTRA require a certificate of indemnity to be issued.
