Intensive care patients benefit from research funding
Our most unwell patients will benefit from more than $7million of funding awarded to Auckland District Health Board researchers by the Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC).
Of the funded projects announced earlier in June, Auckland DHB’s intensive care researchers were particularly well represented.
The highest funding ($4.9m) was awarded to research into the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia – a disease that results in more than 17,000 hospitalisations a year in New Zealand. Lead by Dr Colin McArthur, of the Department of Critical Care Medicine, the innovative trial design will investigate the best options for treating pneumonia in intensive care and hospital practice.

New ADHB research application form - v3
As of May 2016 only use v3 of the "Application form for approval of a research project at ADHB" (for the standard approval pathway). The signature sections of the form have been updated to be more consistent with ADHB organisational structure and financial policy. Also, a clinical safety sub-section has been added to the Proposal section (now Section C). The purpose of these questions are to act a prompt for researchers to consider how to pro-actively manage the risk of protocol violations when more than one ADHB department will have significant involvement in the study.
