The Cabrini Research Governance Office (CRGO) is responsible for ensuring that:
Cabrini abides by the following research directives:
Cabrini's former Human Research Ethics Committee (CHREC) closed on 31 December 2019. The Cabrini Research Governance Office was introduced in 2020, offering review of low or negligible risk projects, and site governance for single or multi-site projects with a moderate to high level of risk. Human Research Ethics Committee Review of moderate to high risk studies can be sought via Monash Partners HRECs through Monash Health HREC and Alfred Health HREC. To enable concurrent governance review, please send your application (which can include an HREA and VSM) and supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The level of risk of your proposed research will determine which path is required to seek approval to conduct your study at Cabrini. Ethics and governance approval must be secured before any research can commence. Please review the CRGO Handbook, below, for next steps.
If you need to complete your GCP or refresh you GCP certificate, please refer to Monash Partners - GCP Arrangements for 2020.
We continue to work on refining our low risk and governance processes to enable good user experience and facilitative research start up. Your feedback is important to us. Please let us have your comments via email@example.com.
The CRGO Handbook will provide you with all the necessary information to complete a low risk or governance submission.
