GAME CHANGER PROGRAM
PARTICIPATION IN TRIALS HELPS MAKE NEW TREATMENTS A REALITY
Clinical trials are an important final step before new therapies are made available to those who need them.
One of the biggest barriers to running successful clinical trials is having the right participants.
Recognising this gap, JDRF created the T1D Game Changer program to help match eligible participants with relevant clinical trials. We have 4467 GAME CHANGERS across Australia and counting.
JDRF is proactively finding volunteers and providing them with information about clinical research and upcoming trials. We are engaging T1D health care professionals who play an important role in the recruitment of patients for trials.
There are currently over 20 T1D clinical trials being run by Australian researchers and clinicians, including 7 CRN-funded trials and initiatives, with more studies in the development and planning phase.
