Research is a vital element in pursuing constant improvement and clinical quality and one of the strengths of the San Prostate Centre. Sydney Adventist Hospital is committed to providing an environment which nurtures research opportunities for our clinicians. Many of our Prostate Specialists are heavily involved in published research as well as teaching appointments, and the learning environment they create has a positive flow-on effect for all those involved in the Prostate Centre.
Many of our doctors are widely published and involved in research. See our recent publications page for further information.
San Clinical Trials Unit
The San Clinical Trials Unit is made up of a team of Medical Oncologists, Clinical Trial Coordinators, Clinical Trial Pharmacists and experienced Oncology Nurses, and offers participation in multi-centre, national and international clinical trials.
The main aim of the unit is to provide all Oncology patients treated at Sydney Adventist Hospital the best possible treatment outcomes by offering the opportunity to participate in the most current treatment options available in the field of medical oncology.
Trial Management is performed by a collaborative group of Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacy, Pathology and Radiology staff and is coordinated by experienced Clinical Trial Coordinators. Treatments are either delivered in the Poon Day Infusion Centre or as outpatient treatments.
