ANZCA Clinical Trials Network

We are the leading clinical trials network in anaesthesia, pain and perioperative medicine.  We have a clear focus to translate our research findings into practice to improve patient safety and care in our communities and globally.

Our trials are investigator-led and therefore regarded as public good trials, where they seek the definitive answers for the best practice that is relevant to practitioners, patients and policy makers.

About the ANZCA Clinical Trials Network

Our clinical trials seek definitive answers to inform best practice and improve patient care and safety. Explore who we are; how we work; what we do; and why we do it.
