WORKING WITH CHINA
Our partnership with the Chinese Neuroscience Network continues to grow.
Headquartered at Beijing Tiantan Hospital, the network encompasses 250 leading academic medical centers in China, spanning across 27 provinces, 4 municipalities and Hong Kong. We have completed a number of trials in China and activated new trials sites in Taiwan in late 2018.
Australia China Training Initiative of Neurology (ACTION)
Formally endorsed by the World Federation of Neurology, the Australia China Training Initiative of Neurology (ACTION) aims to provide world-class clinical education and exchange for Australian and Chinese neurologists and neurologists-in-training, in both Australia and China.
ACTION is now in its 12th year and has trained over 350 young neurologists since its inception. Professor Bernard Yan leads this program which has been developed to strengthen research collaborations with Chinese and South-East Asian University Hospitals. Three other people who play a very important part in the delivery of this program are Professor Stephen Davis (Director of MBC-RMH), Professor Wang Shaoshi (Director of Cerebrovascular Disease centre at Tongji University) and Professor Henry Ma (Director of Neurology and Stroke at Monash Health). These collaborative ties will provide the foundations for international patient outcomes in research projects, allowing us to combine and analyse data from Australian and Chinese clinical databases.
ACTION is supported by the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations.

ACTION 2019: PROGRAM CELEBRATES 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN MELBOURNE
In late November, our latest class of Chinese neurologists travelled to Melbourne, a visit that provided another opportunity to recognise and celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Australia China Training Initiative of Neurology (ACTION), established in conjunction with the Chinese Neuroscience Network. This very informative and interesting week-long event complemented the visit senior members of the MBC-RMH leadership team had made to Shanghai in July.
