About the ANZICS Clinical Trials Group

The ANZICS Clinical Trials Group (CTG) was formed in 1994 by a group of Intensivists keen to establish a network of investigators capable of designing and conducting multi-centre, investigator-initiated research in Australasian Intensive Care Units (ICUs). The ANZICS CTG is essentially a highly collegial, multi-disciplinary community of Intensive Care Clinicians & Researchers​ who have to date attracted over $130m (AUD) in total research funding. The ANZICS CTG currently has 41 active studies.

The ANZICS Clinical Trials Group (CTG) is:

  • a standing committee of the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS), committed to upholding the values of the society
  • a collective of Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and dedicated researchers
  • professionals who collaborate to support the conduct of world-class clinical research in Australasian intensive care
  • committed to establishing networks of investigators and strong partnerships with external research bodies both locally and internationally.

To promote excellence in Intensive Care medicine through collaborative clinical research focused on improving patient-centred outcomes.
