“A Framework for NHMRC Assessment and Funding of Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies” - public consultation
High quality clinical trials and cohort studies are the cornerstone of modern evidence-based decision making. Although they can be expensive to do well, they can lead to significant changes in policy or practice, improvements in health and well-being and cost savings to the health system. It is therefore critical that the framework applied to their assessment and funding by NHMRC is fit for purpose and supports efficient, relevant, high quality studies that will fill gaps in knowledge and produce meaningful, implementable findings.

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is inviting comment on the proposed Framework for NHMRC Assessment and Funding of Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies. 

View the NHMRC website for consultation and submission guidelines. The consultation period closes 14 July 2017.
