Executive Summary

Italy has established the national healthcare R&D commission. The ultimate aim of the Commissione nazionale della Ricerca Sanitaria (CNRS) is to provide a practical link between national research activities and regional healthcare delivery policies. It will establish research projects in line with national healthcare priorities, and monitor and analyse peer-reviewed data more widely, with a view to broadcasting the implications that emerge from these, according to the health ministry. As such, its activities should, says the ministry, directly influence the delivery of the national healthcare programme. The commission comprises 30 members, equally representing the central government and the collective of regional healthcare authorities (Conferenza Stato Regioni); it is chaired by health minister Livia Turco.
