June 2018 - Streamlining ethics review

From 1 June 2018, the Eye and Ear will be participating in initiatives to streamline ethical review and minimise duplicate ethical review.

Single site research projects require approval from the Eye and Ear HREC.

Multi-site clinical trials can be reviewed and approved by an accredited Reviewing HREC and the Eye and Ear can now accept the ethical approval from that accredited Reviewing HREC.

The Eye and Ear will still conduct a site specific assessment for Research Governance Authorisation for Eye and Ear sites.

The Research Office website has been updated to reflect these changes.
