The trial is in progress at multiple sites in Sydney (Westmead Hospital, Nepean Hospital, Norwest Private Hospital, Liverpool Hospital, Prince of Wales Hospital and St George Hospital, and two private clinics), regional NSW (Wollongong Hospital, John Hunter Hospital, two Private Clinics in Gosford) and Perth (Sir Charles Gardinar Hospital).
