Endorsed Trials

ANMCTN endorsed nurse and midwifery led trials.

The Importance of Endorsed Trials Research Development

One of the key goals of the ANMCTN is to encourage and support high-quality research on models of care to improve the health of individuals, communities, and society.

As the peak body representing nursing and midwifery-led research, an endorsement by the ANMCTN is validation of high-quality research.

How to Apply for Endorsement

The ANMCTN will consider endorsement of nationally competitive scale grant applications which provides research on models of care to improve preventative health measures and/or optimise health outcomes for individuals, communities, and society. These trials or studies may be multidisciplinary in nature but require nursing or midwifery to be central to the leadership, conduct, and focus of the research.

We will consider protocols related to grant applications or published protocols for which funding has been sourced for the study.

We will also consider fellowships or other investigator-centric grants where there is a significant proportion of the proposed research program dedicated to trials or studies that meet the requirements listed in paragraph one of this section.

Please note the minimum turnaround time for endorsement review is 21 days from receipt of an application.

The Australasian Nursing and Midwifery Clinical Trials Network Chair of the Scientific Committee (Chair of the Scientific Committee) will decide on the eligibility of trials for endorsement, considering the appropriateness of research questions, methodology, public interest, and competing priorities among investigators and studies.

Protocols for the Endorsement of a Clinical Trial

The ANMCTN is committed to facilitating high-quality, high-impact clinical research to improve patient outcomes, advance clinical care through contribution to the evidence base, and improve the efficiency of the healthcare system.

The ANMCTN has established a trial endorsement process whereby submitted study protocols will undergo peer review assessment by members of the ANMCTN Scientific Committee.  At the end of this process, feedback will be provided to the applicant as to whether their application has been endorsed.  Should the protocol be endorsed, it will be listed on the ANMCTN website for the study team to reference as part of its grant submission.

As the peak body representing nursing and midwifery-led research, an endorsement by the ANMCTN is validation of high-quality research.
