Administration of the ANZICS Clinical Trials Group (CTG) is supported by annual membership subscriptions received from Intensive Care Units across Australia and New Zealand. ANZICS employs two staff who coordinate all ANZICS CTG activities. These include two critical care research meetings per year (the Annual Meeting on Clinical Trials in Intensive Care (Noosa) and the Winter Research Forum), scientific review of new projects and manuscripts for ANZICS CTG endorsement, governance and policy implementation, research training and mentoring, and activities to preserve and build ICU research capacity. The ANZICS CTG office is an essential component of the ICU community’s research effort and it is entirely dependent on support from member Units.
The ANZICS CTG offers membership (AUD $2,500+ GST pa – fee remained static since 2012) to all public and private ICUs, within Australia and New Zealand and overseas. The benefits of membership to units includes:
Opportunities to participate in world-class, patient-centred research.
Demonstrate a program of quality assurance and research for accreditation by training colleges and other certifying bodies.
Reduced cost registrations for staff to attend ANZICS CTG scientific meetings.
Collaboration using the ANZICS CTG’s impressive track record to assist with grant submissions.
Access to expert advice and support from key ANZICS CTG members.
Access to the ANZICS CTG mailing list for ICU employees.
