About G-I-N ANZ
Following Board approval on 17th August 2013, the Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) has established a regional group that links organisations, groups and individuals with an interest in guidelines developed to improve health care in Australia and New Zealand. Run by G-I-N members for members and affiliates, this regional group will support networking and capacity building via meetings, webinars and online forums.
Aims of G-I-N ANZ Regional Group:
A regional group for Australia and New Zealand (G-I-N ANZ) will aim to promote and support local links and initiatives for organisations, groups and individuals with an interest in clinical and public health guidelines.
The group’s objectives are to:
- Promote the G-I-N mission at a local level in Australia and New Zealand
- Provide a localised network for guideline users, developers, researchers and implementers
- Promote regional efficiencies and effectiveness of evidence-based guidance including guideline formats, development, adaptation, updating, dissemination and implementation
- Coordinate with other health quality improvement initiatives in Australia and New Zealand
- Organise and promote sharing of knowledge and regional events including an annual forum
Benefits of joining:
- Networking with others involved locally in guidelines to share “lessons learned”
- Access to others with similar interests for collaboration, mentoring and problem solving
- Sharing efficient methods for prioritising, developing, updating and implementing guidelines
- Exploring emerging trends in guideline development including online formats and guidelines to support management of chronic and complex conditions
- Opportunities for collaborative evaluation and research on guideline development and use
- Exposure to the Guidelines-International-Network
Who can be involved in G-I-N ANZ?
Current G-I-N member organisations and individuals in Australia and New Zealand are encouraged to join. Participation is also open to other organisations and individuals in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the nearby Asia and Pacific region, involved in the production, implementation and use of guidelines including: methodologists; systematic reviewers; technical/medical writers; clinicians; consumers; researchers; policy makers; funders; project managers and other stakeholders who demonstrate a specific role or interest in guidelines.
Must I become a G-I-N member to join?
You can subscribe to our mailing list as a non-member to get acquainted with our activities, which we hope will convince you to become an active G-I-N member. G-I-N membership confers significant benefits that include access to resources, working groups (including G-I-N ANZ), guideline development tools, a newsletter and the guideline library. Full members can interact and network with the international GIN community to exchange ideas, receive advice and avoid duplicating efforts.
