Overview

Cancer Symptom Trials (CST) is one of fourteen Cancer Cooperative Trials Groups (CCTGs) funded by Cancer Australia.

Through our clinical trials, we research options for improved management of symptoms that can occur due to a cancer diagnosis and related treatments. Our goal is to ensure the best quality of life possible for people with cancer. We acknowledge the significant role that carers play in the lives of people with cancer. We welcome their inclusion and participation in our research.

In collaboration with Cancer Council WA and Palliative Care Clinical Studies Collaborative (PaCCSC), we are running a workshop to introduce cancer symptom management clinical trials to new or experienced researchers.
