The Interdisciplinary Maternal Perinatal Australasian Collaborative Trials (IMPACT) Network is a subcommittee of PSANZ. The ON TRACK Network is closely aligned with and works alongside the IMPACT Network. The IMPACT Network hosts a Clinical Trials Database of past, current and proposed large scale trials in maternal and perinatal health and provides a host of resources for researchers with advice on trial set-up, trial management and trial completion.
The Australian Clinical Trials Alliance (ACTA) was formed in 2014 as a ‘network of networks’ to advocate for clinical trial networks across all specialities including many bi-national ANZ networks. They have published a number of papers, statements and submissions that support the work of clinical trial networks including a Report on the Activities & Achievements of Clinical Trials Networks in Australia (2004-2014) and the Economic Evaluation of Investigator-Initiated Clinical Trials Conducted by Networks (2017).
The New Zealand College of Midwives (NZCOM) publish Consensus Statements to provide women, midwives and the maternity services with the profession’s position on particular maternal and perinatal issues including normal birth, vaginal birth after caesarean, risk of preeclampsia, cord blood banking and immunisation.
