ASERNIP-SMission statement

The mission of the Australian Safety and Efficacy Register of New Interventional Procedures - Surgical (ASERNIP-S) is to provide quality and timely assessments of new and emerging surgical technologies and techniques. Services provided include:

  • full and rapid systematic reviews, and technology overviews of the peer-reviewed literature
  • the establishment and facilitation of clinical and research audits or studies
  • the assessment of new and emerging techniques and technologies by horizon scanning
  • input into the production of clinical practice guidelines.

Our ultimate aim is to improve the quality of healthcare through the wide dissemination of our evidence-based research to surgeons, healthcare providers and consumers, both nationally and internationally.

The information provided on the ASERNIP-S website is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her physician.

This site does not host or receive funding from advertising.

General information on ASERNIP-S assessment processes

Information on this website is written by College research staff with expert knowledge of health technology assessment, with advice and contribution from Fellows and Trainees and other relevant clinical experts. All ASERNIP-S content is approved by a Director and by senior Fellowship Councillors, as appropriate, before becoming available online. For reports completed for external stakeholders (e.g. the Medical Services Advisory Committee, the Victorian Department of Health, HealthPACT) all reports undergo a formal review process prior to publication.
