Human Research Ethics Committees help protect the interests of patients, researchers and Cabrini by maintaining high ethical research standards across all research projects and all levels of risk.
Our Human Research Ethics Committees ensure that:
The National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Research Involving Humans issued by the National Health and Medical Research Council in 2007, other relevant Commonwealth and State legislation and regulations and Catholic Health Australia’s Code of Ethical Standards for Catholic Health and Aged Care Services in Australia apply at Cabrini.
Research projects at Cabrini will be processed through the Monash Health HREC and Alfred Health HREC. To enable concurrent governance review, please send your application and supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Research to be conducted at Cabrini must have both HREC and Governance approval before commencement. Please follow instruction for Governance submission in the CHREC Handbook, below.
We are working on refining the new HREC processes to enable good user experience and facilitative research start up. Your feedback is important to us. Please let us have your comments email@example.com.
The Handbook is the most important CHREC resource and contains all the information researchers need to complete a research proposal for submission.
