Recent enhancements to the Victorian Cancer Trials Link (VCTL) site have resulted in a fresh new look, improved functionality and new features, which make the search for a clinical trial more accessible to people who would like to participate in a trial.
Other features of the website include simplified trial information and headings; an interactive hover glossary to help people translate clinical information on the site; quick access to Cancer Council Victoria’s experienced cancer nurses; and a suite of general information and resources about cancer clinical trials.
To ensure that the VCTL website is properly meeting the needs of everyone who uses it, we have developed a survey to evaluate the changes we have made to the website and to inform further developments to the VCTL mobile app, which is available for you to download on both Apple and Android devices.
The survey contains 17 questions and will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
To complete this survey and provide your valued feedback about the VCTL website, visit www.cancervic.org.au/trials and click ‘Take a Survey’.
We look forward to hearing your feedback.
