Anaesthesia research co-ordinators

Research co-ordinators are vital to the success of research departments. They provide the knowledge and expertise to perform critical roles in research and clinical trials. Find out how you can get involved.

Anaesthesia Research Co-Ordinators Network (ARCN)

ARCN represents more than 160 research co-ordinators facilitating anaesthesia research around Australia and New Zealand. The network is overseen by the Anaesthesia Research Coordinators Network Sub-Committee.

Annual ARCN workshop and networking event

Each year before the formal program of the Clinical Trials Network Strategic Research Workshop, the ARCN Sub-Committee hosts a networking event and also a separate workshop for research co-ordinators and interested fellows and trainees to discuss hot topics in clinical trial conduct. This event provides opportunities for anaesthesia research co-ordinators to meet with their peers and mentors.

In March 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic this event took place as a virtual workshop where more than 90 participants across Australia and New Zealand joined in. 

CTN sessions

The CTN office runs monthly inservice teleconferences which aim to provide engagement, discussion and education for research co-ordinators on various research topics relevant to trial conduct.

Previous topics include journal club, ethics and governance in Australia and New Zealand, and Research 101. If you would like access to any of the previous sessions or would like to be added to the mailing list for the inservice sessions please email Paige Druce or phone +61 3 9903 0016

Research co-ordinators toolkit

The ARCN Sub-committee is developing a number of guidance documents for new and experienced co-ordinators. They can be accessed on the Research Support Toolkit.
