ACTA MRFF consultation submission

After attending recent public consultation fora, ACTA has made its submission to the MRFF priority funding areas for 2018-2010 consultation. 

Our submission focuses on three ongoing priorities currently recognised by the MRFF: Clinical Trials Networks, Clinical Quality Registries and public good demonstration trials. We also proposed three new priorities to address gaps in the current funding landscape: Coordinating Centres as hubs for critical research and expertise, Practitioner Fellowships accessible to a wider range of clinical contexts and earlier in clinician researcher careers, and closer collaboration between funding decision makers such as the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee and the Medical Services Advisory Committee and investigator-driven research.
