A multi-centre research trial is a clinical trial conducted at more than one medical centre or clinic. Most large clinical trials, particularly Phase III trials, are conducted at several clinical research centres.
Multi-centre trials are considerably more complex (e.g. co-ordination, quality control, data management) than single centre trials and therefore it is essential to have efficient central co-ordination of all trial activities. Bellberry HREC’s have been providing research ethics review for multi-centre trials since 2005.
