Research

The Queensland Centre for Gynaecologic Cancer (QCGC), to which Dr Andrea Garrett is affiliated, is a statewide service for the provision of Gynaecologic Cancer services in Queensland. The Centre aims to provide the best quality of care for patients. Research is an important aspect of any cancer service in order to investigate and improve the management of gynaecologic cancers.

The Research department, within QCGC, co-ordinates local, national and international trials. Current research trials developed by QCGC Research include the LACE Trial (Laparoscopic Approach to Cancer of the Endometrium), LACC Trial (Laparoscopic Approach to Cancer of the Cervix), Lymphoedema (LEGS) Trial and the Nutrition Study (for Ovarian Cancer patients). Other trials that we are affiliated with include the AGO-OVAR OP2 Trial, Outback Trial and UPSC Trial.

QCGC Research is constantly developing and implementing future research projects. More information is available and donations can be made by visiting the website www.gyncan.org.
