Research Governance ensures that research meets the standards of quality, safety, privacy, risk management, financial management and ethical acceptability. It provides a framework for health districts, facilities, managers and researchers to share accountability for research conduct.
To obtain authorisation, researchers need to submit a Site Specific Assessment (SSA) via REGIS.
IMPORTANT: It is essential to refer to the PRE-SUBMISSION GUIDE available. BEFORE submitting an email query or application to the Research Office.
