ACI Research Framework
To guide all research the ACI undertakes, commissions or partners in, to ensure this research meets the highest ethical, scientific, regulatory and professional standards.
This framework ensures that ACI research meets the highest ethical, scientific, regulatory and professional standards.
Undertaking or sourcing relevant, high-quality research, which informs its mandate,functions, strategic plan and priorities, is an objective of the ACI.
While investing in health and medical research can lead to significant benefits to the work of ACI and the wider community, it also has the potential to involve risk. This risk can potentially involve participants, the organisation,and/or investigators.
To address this, a robust, comprehensive and transparent research framework ensures that all research meets the highest ethical, scientific, regulatory and professional standards.
The ACI Research Framework is set out in three broad sections to address the governance, management and conduct of research.
Whilst ACI inherently is supportive of innovation and the significant role of health and medical research, it will prioritise partnering in research that:
- Is directly relevant to our Strategic Plan
- Has a greater focus on translation to clinical practice or to population health
- Improves our knowledge of methods for optimising change across the health system.
This framework aligns organisational goals, behaviours and processes by using proven tools and tactics to deliver and sustain desired change.
The ACI Research Framework was developed by the ACI Research Committee,in consultation with many ACI Clinical Networks, Taskforces and Institutes aswell as external stakeholders, including the NSW Office for Health and MedicalResearch.
