For most research involving humans to be conducted by staff and students within the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health (MSPGH), an ethics application must be completed and submitted to the HEAG. It must be written in language that an educated layperson can understand, avoiding the use of technical jargon.
HEAG reviews consider: adherence to guidelines, clear aims, feasibility, good design, justification, significance, risks and benefits.
Infonetica ERM is now live
The innovative new Infonetica Ethics Review Manager (ERM) system is now live for researchers.
From today, researchers will create new human research ethics applications in Infonetica ERM, and they will no longer use Themis Human Ethics Workbench.
Data migration activities are well underway. On 9 November, your inflight human research ethics applications in Themis will be made available in Infonetica ERM.
For technical system support, please submit a Service Now webform or call the Service Centre on (03) 8344 0888.
