On 3rd December 2012, the CRE hosted a research roundtable at the University of New South Wales. The roundtable was endorsed by NACCHO. Facilitated by James Ward from CRE, and  Dr Ngiare Brown and Janine Milera from the  National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO), the roundtable was attended by 30 participants with expertise and an interest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander vaccination issues, including Aboriginal health research experts, health services providers, public health officers and CRE members. Participants came from the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and its affiliates, Aboriginal health councils and Aboriginal health services.

The roundtable aim was to assist the CRE with identifying research priorities in the area of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander vaccination needs from the ground up. The roundtable offered the opportunity to hear the views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The stakeholders recommended that the focus of CRE research should be on strategies to improve immunizations coverage and timeliness across the life span, across the rural and urban parts of the country and on the issues of workforce for immunizations.

Following the roundtable, the CRE started a newsletter to roundtable delegates to keep them informed of going on activities within the stream. These newsletters have and will be distributed quarterly.
