The College of Emergency Nursing Australasia (CENA) strongly advocates evidence based emergency care to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. To achieve this CENA will promote the use of evidence to guide practice and support research in a variety of ways.

CENA will consider applications from researchers to access the College membership for the purposes of research. The researchers must complete an application which will be reviewed by the research committee to ensure that the study is robust, ethical and in the interests of our members.

The College will also consider other ways in which they can support research projects upon application to the Research Committee. Small grants may also be available to members to support a study that is considered of interest to emergency nurses.

How to apply to access CENA membership for participation in research studies

Access to the general membership list is available to researchers at a cost. The CENA membership database or any member details will not be made available to external groups. Research materials will be sent to members from our national office.
