Due to the cancellation of the 2020 workshop, the ANZCA CTN welcomes you to the 2021 ANZCA CTN Strategic Research Workshop to be held in Brisbane, Queensland, 5-8 August 2021.

This three-day event brings together experienced and early career researchers, medical professionals and research co-ordinators from Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

The workshop objectives are to strengthen the collaborative approach to multicentre research in anaesthesia, perioperative and pain medicine; to encourage, promote and mentor researchers to engage in clinical research to improve patient outcomes; and to showcase the recent achievements and research activity of the ANZCA Clinical Trials Network.
