ANZCA Research Foundation Board of Governors

Committees navigation

The ANZCA Research Foundation Board of Governors (“the Governors”) reports to the ANZCA Research Foundation Committee on its activities. The Governors act in an advisory capacity to oversee, monitor, provide advice to and actively promote the ANZCA Research Foundation's (“the Foundation”), mission to support medical research and education that saves lives, helps people to optimise their health, and works to make life as pain-free as possible.

The foundation pursues its mission by raising funds to:


•    Increase the safety and comfort of patients undergoing anaesthesia and sedation


•    Improve outcomes for critically ill patients following surgery or trauma


•    Improve the treatment of acute pain, cancer pain and persistent nonā€cancer pain

The foundation's vision is to be a leader in funding high-quality research and education in anaesthesia, perioperative and pain medicine.

Council has developed terms of reference for the committees that report to it. The aim is to streamline both council and committee work by clarifying the purpose of and arrangements for committees, particularly to define which functions are delegated to committees (and reported through to council) and which require council approval. The terms of reference includes standardised definitions of a quorum, voting rules and that electronic decisions should be recorded in the minutes of the next meeting.
