Clinical Trial Network General Practice Fellow 0.5 FTE – HRB Primary Care Clinical Trials Network Ireland

The HRB Primary Care CTNI is a collaborative partnership that brings together key people in Ireland to run clinical trials in primary care. Working closely with the public, with patients and with GPs and other healthcare professionals, the Network aims to improve individual patient health and healthcare by conducting high-quality, internationally recognised, randomised trials in Irish primary care, addressing important and common problems.

Established in 2015 and funded for 5 years by the Health Research Board, the HRB Primary Care CTNI is a collaboration between researchers based at the National University of Ireland Galway, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and Queen's University Belfast. The Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP) is the other key partner in the Network, with many GPs and other primary care health professionals already engaged in research with the Network. A number of Irish and international partners are also part of the Network.

Network activities include i) providing access and support to those interested in conducting trials in Irish primary care, including industry sponsors; ii) supporting multidisciplinary education for all those interested in primary care trials; and iii) supporting public and patient involvement in research. To date, we have almost 150 registered practices involved in 11 national and 6 international trials with over 3300 patients recruited. We have hosted 4 National Public and Patient Involvement in Research conferences, 4 webinar series and have published in both peer-reviewed journals and other publications.
