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.
Cabrini abides by the following research directives:
- The National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research issued by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in 2007 and subsequent updates;
- other relevant Commonwealth and State legislation; and
- Catholic Health Australia’s Code of Ethical Standards for Catholic Health and Aged Care Services in Australia (2001).
Ensure you are familiar with Cabrini’s Clinical Trial COVID-19 response which has adopted government recommendations.
