Structure of the ANZNN
The Advisory Council is the governing body of the ANZNN and includes the directors (or their nominee) of each participating neonatal intensive care unit, holders of a Chair in Perinatal/Neonatal medicine or nursing, and any persons elected to the Executive Committee not in the previous categories. The Director of NPESU, who is the data custodian for the ANZNN, is also a member of the Advisory Council. The purpose of the Advisory Council is to monitor the progress of the ANZNN, discuss current issues and agree on new variables for inclusion in the minimum data set and to approve the use of the data for research.
The Executive Committee is an elected committee that has area representation from neonatologists, data managers and nurses from across the Network and is concerned with the general functioning of the network, finance and decision-making. The Chair of the Executive can be contacted through the ANZNN Coordinator.
