Steps to update your ANZCTR trial registration record

  • Login to your ANZCTR user account, and click the 'My trials' icon in the top right hand corner of the homepage. A list of your trial records will appear.
  • Locate the registration record you wish to update and click on 'Update trial'.
  • If you are updating the trial record for the purpose of maintaining an 'Up to date' label and you are sure that there are no updates to be made, then you can go straight to the 'Review & Submit' page and tick the 'Trial is up to date' box beneath the 'Submit' button. Please then click 'Submit' to send the form for review by ANZCTR staff.
    Please note: New mandatory fields may have been introduced since you last updated the record. If this is the case, error messages will show and you will need to update these fields accordingly.
  • If your trial was registered prior to 1st January 2011, then you will be taken directly to the Brief Update Form. This feature has been introduced to speed up the update process for older trials which are no longer recruiting participants, and contains all the mandatory fields in a single page. Fields can be updated by following points 5 to 7 below. You can access the full form to make additional updates as required using the navigation arrows at the top of the page at any time. Once you have finished updating, please click the 'Submit' button at the bottom of the brief update page, or follow points 8 to 11 below if you are using the full form.
  • To update information: Tick the 'Update' box on the right of the field(s) you wish to update. Two input fields will then appear:
    • one to enter the updated information (*Note that the exact text you enter into this field will replace the previous input)
    • one to enter a reason for the update.
    You must complete both input fields.
  • To delete trial information:
    • If you wish to delete information included in non-mandatory single answer fields (e.g. UTN, Trial acronym, etc), tick the 'Update' box on the right of the field(s) you wish to delete and then leave the update field blank. You must provide a reason for this deletion by completing the 'Reason' field.
    • If you wish to delete information included in non-mandatory multiple answer fields (e.g. funding source, outcomes, etc), tick the 'Update' box on the right of the field(s) you wish to delete and then click on the 'Delete' button on the right hand side. You must provide a reason for this deletion by completing the 'Reason' field.
  • To cancel an update: Please click on the 'Cancel' button on the right hand side if available. For fields that do not have the cancel button, un-tick the 'Update' box.
  • Please note: Mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk (*) and must be completed in order for you to successfully submit your updates. These include some new mandatory fields that may not have been included at the time your trial was registered.
  • Once you have completed your updates and checked that all (including new) mandatory fields have been completed, click on the 'Next Step' at the bottom of each page until you reach the 'Review & Submit' page.
  • Review all of your updates. If any amendments need to be made click on the Edit button next to the relevant step.
  • If you are satisfied with the updates, click 'Submit' at the top or bottom of the page. A message will appear confirming that your updates were successfully submitted. You should also receive a confirmation email.
  • ANZCTR staff will check your submission and contact you within 4 working days. The updated trial information must be approved by ANZCTR staff before it becomes publicly viewable on the website.
  • Please note: If you are awaiting review of your updates, you will not be able to login and make further changes to the trial record. You must wait until these updates have been processed.
