The Better Treatments 4 Kids (BT4K) Network NSW

The Better Treatments 4 Kids (NSW) Network is a collaboration of paediatric researchers from NSW based children’s hospitals and research institutes.

This network, funded by the NSW Office of Health and Medical Research (OHMR), aims to improve health outcomes for children and their families, by increasing the quality and quantity of paediatric clinical research in NSW, thus supporting evidence-based health care.

The network is hosted by Kids Research at The Children's Hospital at Westmead and the current institutional members are the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Westmead; Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick; and John Hunter Children’s Hospital, Newcastle. To contact the network for information on  upcoming educational opportunities and initiatives email info@bt4k.com.au or visit their website www.bt4k.com.au.

BT4K hosts The Kaleidoscope Project which aims to establish research priorities for childhood chronic conditions. The project will involve input from children, teenagers, parents and carers, health care providers and researchers. They are currently taking suggestions, so if your child suffers from a chronic illness, you and your child can fill out their survey. The more responses they receive the better they can target research that is important to you.
