Early Phase Trials Best Practice Checklist

This checklist provides a summary of recommendations, considerations and resources for clinical research sites in the conduct of clinical trials, particularly those sites conducting early phase studies. For existing clinical trial sites it will validate your current practices, for new sites it will guide you in your set up.

Getting Started with the Checklist

Click on the image below for an Excel checklist of best practice requirements for the conduct of clinical trials. Work through each tab of the checklist in your preferred order.  (Instructions and FAQ's can be found in the links to the right).

The summary page of the checklist gives you the option to only show your 'NO' responses, so you can see what areas your site needs to focus on to meet best practice standards.


We are interested in your feedback on both the content and functionality of the checklist. Your feedback is incredibly valuable in helping us to refine the current Excel version and enable the future development of an online based checklist.

CT:IQ project team

The checklist was developed by a project team from CT:IQ Steering Committee member organisations, bringing a broad range of experience and expertise from within the Australian clinical trials sector to the project. See who was on the project team.
