CTN leadership groups and governance

The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists Clinical Trials Network (ANZCA CTN) supports high quality clinical trials in all forms of peri-operative care and pain management across Australia and New Zealand.
The ANZCA CTN is collaboration between ANZCA and Monash University through a memorandum of understanding. The network is supported by a central Clinical Trials Network (CTN) Office based at Monash University. The network is led by the CTN Executive, which is a sub-committee of the ANZCA Research Committee and reports through the Research Committee to ANZCA Council. 

The Anaesthesia Research Coordinators Network (ARCN) is a sub-committee of the CTN Executive, representing more than 150 research coordinators facilitating anaesthesia research around Australia and New Zealand. The ARCN works with the CTN Executive to address key issues for research coordinators, contribute to policy, and to build a sustainable multicentre research workforce.

The ANZCA Clinical Trials Network has more than 70 sites participating in CTN-endorsed trials across Australia and New Zealand. The network’s operations are supported centrally by the CTN office which is based at the Central Clinical School, Monash University.
