Strategic Review of Health and Medical Research in Australia

Review Panel: Private Meeting 11

Update: 11 October 2012

The Panel of the Strategic Review of Health and Medical Research in Australia held its 11th private meeting in Sydney on Wednesday 10 October 2012.

The Panel noted the very positive feedback received from key stakeholders, the media and the broader public, following release of its summary Consultation Paper on 3 October 2012.

The Panel spent time finalising detail in its full Consultation Paper which is scheduled for release in mid October. The full Paper provides supporting detail for the Panel's 21 major recommendations and underlying implementation tasks. Further work on detail to be included in the final report was also considered by members. The Panel subsequently decided not to release a more detailed Consultation Paper in October, but to consider feedback on the summary Consultation Paper at its next meeting.

The Panel is on track to provide its final report to the Minister in late 2012, as requested by the Australian Government when the Review was established in 2011. The Panel's report will include recommendations for a 10-year, national, strategic health and medical research plan.

The Panel's next meeting is scheduled for early November 2012 in Melbourne.
