Why was the APRN Established

Why was the APRN established?

In Australia, many children receive paediatric health care in private, community or hospital outpatient settings. These children attend with common issues that present challenging problems of diagnosis, management, and service access.

Without a network like the APRN, it’s difficult to research these issues – that’s why most children’s research is based in hospitals or else in primary care or community settings like schools. The APRN aims to address this gap, with a focus on practical issues in the “real world” paediatric setting.
