COVID-19: Everything you need to know about patient and visitor information.
Alfred Health Radiation Oncology consults with patients on their cancer care and provides radiation therapy for patients who need it. In partnership with Monash University, we are active in clinical and preclinical trials. We participate in the full range of cancer trials, from basic biology, immunology, and physics, through to a range of clinical trials testing new treatments.
We need clinical trials to prove that a new medication, device or treatment is safe and effective for people.
Without clinical trials, new treatments and medicines cannot be approved for use in Australia.
Alfred Health Radiation Oncology is an academic Monash University-associated department active in clinical and preclinical trials.
We co-ordinate closely with other Alfred Health services and with the regional cancer centre in Traralgon where we have a radiation oncology facility. This facility brings a unique regional perspective to clinical trials.
