Our mission is to contribute significantly to collaborative home-grown and multi-centre research

About

Our Research

The Canberra Hospital ICU has an international reputation for leading and contributing to high quality, patient-centred research which leads to improved patient experiences and outcomes around the world.


We focus on developing and conducting investigator-initiated research, collaborate on many ANZ and international projects and support a number of PhD students. Our ICU is a member of the Australia and New Zealand Intensive Care Society Clinical Trials Group (ANZICS CTG).


With strong links to the Australian National University and the University of Canberra, there are many opportunities to get involved with clinical and basic science research in Canberra ICU.


Our Research Executive committee of nursing, medical and allied health clinicians provides leadership, governance and support for all ICU related research proposals and projects. For more information, please contact the Division of Critical Care, Research and Service Development Unit: RSDU@act.gov.au

CHARM 2019

As part of Canberra Hospital’s commitment to innovation we host an annual Canberra Health Annual Research Meeting (CHARM).


CHARM aims to showcase and recognise the wide range of health research in the Canberra region. It is a joint venture between ACT Health, The Australian National University Medical School, John Curtin School of Medical Research, Australian Catholic University, The University of Canberra, The Australian Institute of Sport, University of New South Wales, Sports Medicine Australia and is organised by the ACT Health Research Office.

Abstract submissions are now open! Submit your abstract today to be a part of the drive toward optimal health care through quality health research.

Abstracts are invited from students and staff from all disciplines of health and medical research.

Submissions close Monday 6 May.
