A two-year project to pilot the implementation of the Tele-Trial Model funded by a consortium of industry, research institutes and consumer groups with matched funding from MTPConnect commenced in August 2017 and has recently been extended for another year. The project is piloting the Model at sites within NSW, Victoria and Queensland while also supporting the implementation of the Model in other states.
