Setting NZ's health research priorities: final consultation starts 12 March
We would like to invite you to have your say on the draft prioritisation model that will drive health research investment in New Zealand up until 2027.
The final consultation will open on 12 March and run for three weeks. We will send you another email with links to the consultation document and survey early next week.
Feedback from this round of consultation will lead to the final prioritisation model and health research priority actions being established in mid-2019.
This consultation is a joint initiative between the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and the Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC). The three agencies have been working with an independent Development Group to establish a model that will create enduring change for the life of the New Zealand Health Research Strategy (2017-2027) and beyond.
All the background information you need about the consultation and prioritisation process to date is available here.
Our initial consultation, held in September and October last year, captured a wealth of information from a wide range of stakeholders. In addition to health researchers, we heard from NGOs, consumers, government agencies, clinicians and allied health professionals; and held consultation workshops with Māori, Pacific and disability communities. That feedback is available on our website and forms the basis of the revised prioritisation model developed by the independent Development Group.
To ensure this revised model will develop the best health research system for New Zealand, we need to hear from you.
Please forward this invitation to anyone else in your organisation who may wish to participate, and thank you for your input into this important process.
