Prior to commencing a research study at CALHN, research governance authorisation must be obtained in addition to Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) approval.
Research Governance is a framework through which institutions are accountable for the research they allow to be conducted under their auspices. Research governance is concerned with the principles, requirements and standards of research. It addresses protection of research participants, the safety and quality of research, privacy and confidentiality, financial probity, legal and regulatory matters, risk management and monitoring arrangements, and promotes good research culture and practice.
