  • Be readily accessible to all Australian and New Zealand clinician-researchers in critical care
  • Expand the national and international reach of large Australian and New Zealand led trials
  • Introduce systems to integrate research results into clinical practice by promulgating research-based practice guidelines
  • Develop integrated clinical research programs that provide the training ground for future clinical trialists in the field of ICM
