Research policy

In keeping with the ACNN vision and mission statement in the promotion of excellence in the care of neonates and to enhance the quality of clinical practice and research, ACNN promotes and facilitates research related to neonatal care. The National Executive encourages member participation in research. All requests from internal and external researchers are reviewed by the committee and if deemed relevant to members, information regarding the research is distributed to members via email. ACNN does not give members details to researchers, the participation request and documents will be distributed by ACNN.  Confidentiality of members details is maintained at all times.

Member participation in research is voluntary.
