Australia is viewed internationally as a country that can execute high-quality trials.
This is due to a number of features of the Australian clinical trials system.
First, medical device trials require high levels of expertise. Australian researchers are highly trained not only in research procedures and the conduct of clinical trials, but also in the technology that is used in such trials. Australia has a number of very talented and recognised world experts in the field of medical device trials.
