SWSLHD and Ingham Institute work together on COVID-19 clinical trials

South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) and the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research have been working hard to identify and initiate COVID-19 clinical trials in south western Sydney. There are more than 15 clinical trials, both community and hospital-based. These include:

Community-based: For those people being managed at home who are COVID-19 positive, a device clinical trial is commencing to look for changes in temperature, respiratory rate and oxygen levels. In families with someone who is COVID-19 positive, a trial will explore whether prophylaxis is effective in preventing infection.

In-hospital: In the hospital setting there are multiple clinical trials for those with mild through to severe COVID-19.

Health care workers: Work has commended on clinical trials for local health care workers including a study with a prophylactic medication and a wellness survey to ensure that frontline staff are supported.

Data collection: Data collection studies are being conducted across a wide range of areas for COVID-19 as a repository for south western Sydney data on the effects of COVID-19 in our community.
