The APRN comprises Australian general paediatricians keen to contribute to new research relevant to both public and private practice. These paediatricians form the members of the APRN.

Regional Representatives are state/territory representatives who meet twice yearly with the Steering Group to decide which research projects the APRN will endorse, and help facilitate research in their regions.

The Steering Group meets bi-monthly to establish the structure and processes of the APRN and is responsible for approving and endorsing research projects.

The Advisory Group has one face to face meeting and two teleconference meetings annually. It comprises external experts in paediatric research. It will meet annually with the Steering Group to advise on the future direction and priorities of the APRN.
