About Us

The Australia & New Zealand Musculoskeletal (ANZMUSC) Clinical Trials Network  is a newly established international, multidisciplinary collaborative clinical trials network composed of clinicians, consumer groups, consumer representatives, policy makers, professional associations and funders with an interest in investigator-initiated clinical trials focusing on musculoskeletal conditions.

Plans for the ANZMUSC Clinical Trials Network  began in 2014 with the formation of a small steering group and in April 2015 the steering group organised the groups’ inaugural summit in Melbourne. During the 2 day summit, over 100 attendees including clinical-researchers across a range of disciplines (physiotherapy, rheumatology, orthopaedics, health economics, biostatistics, pharmacy, geriatrics etc), clinicians, consumer representatives, policy-makers and funders came together and agreed on the vision, mission, values and 1st year goals of the group as critical first steps towards the establishment of the network.

On November 22nd 2016, ANZMUSC will be holding it’s 6 month update meeting at the Cabrini Institute (154 Wattletree Road, Malvern VIC) to discuss the planned priority setting review and update members on ANZMUSC progress to date.
