Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine Foundation
Who we are
Many of the advances in healthcare in Australasia that are crucial to the safety and well-being of patients in acute care and life-threatening situations owe their origins to pioneering research undertaken by ANZCA Fellows. Despite this, research funding in Australia in the areas of anaesthesia, pain medicine and intensive care is amongst the lowest of all medical specialties.
ANZCA established the Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine Foundation in 2007 to support medical research and education that saves lives, helps people to reclaim their health and works to make life as pain-free as possible. The foundation's mission is 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 non-cancer pain.
The Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine Foundation is governed by a committee under the patronage of Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia. Membership of the committee is available here.
