Join the ANZCA CTN Executive for either one or both sessions on Thursday 13 August 12.30-2.30pm AEST and Friday 14 August 2-4pm AEST for the third in a series of virtual workshops we're running in lieu of the annual face-to-face Strategic Research Workshop.


The aims of the workshop are to develop multicentre research protocols for funding applications.


Each session will have up to five speakers who will present their research proposal selected from the abstracts. The program and format for each session will be published on the event web page by Monday 3 August. Participants will have the opportunity to provide feedback as well as utilise the online chat room feature of Zoom. There will also be research evaluation forms for participants to provide further feedback after the sessions. Feedback will be summarised and provided to the researcher.
