The 13th Annual Conference of the New Zealand Association of Clinical Research
Thursday 17 - Friday 18 August 2017
The Pullman Hotel, Auckland, New Zealand
The New Zealand Association of Clinical Research (NZACRes) is the professional association for clinical researchers and clinical research related staff in New Zealand. The Association was formed to foster and promote clinical research by bringing together members of the clinical research community to discuss issues and create collaborative solutions for our industry. Membership includes an extremely broad range of clinical research roles across a number of organisational types including pharmaceutical companies, clinical research organisations, regulatory bodies, university and hospital based staff. NZACRes is a non-profit scientific educational organisation run by a team of volunteer officers elected from amongst its members.
What our delegates are saying:
“The clinical trials environment in NZ is rapidly changing. As a Charge Nurse Manager it is essential to keep up to date and to network with other trial centres and industry in New Zealand. Attending a NZACRes conference has enabled me to increase my knowledge and understanding regarding the regulatory, ethical and clinical aspects, along with practical management of clinical trials and financial management. The face-to-face meeting provides an excellent opportunity to share ideas, develop strong networks and problem-solve with others around common issues. One of the highlights of attending is to get a feel of the national and political landscape of what is happening in New Zealand and around the world.
I would recommend attending this conference as the calibre of speakers and workshop are of great value. It is an opportunity to pause, reflect and return to work refreshed.”
Wendy Thomas, Charge Nurse Manager, Cancer Trials Unit, Regional Cancer Centre, Waikato Hospital, Hamilton
