HEAG Meetings & Deadlines

Meeting dates and deadlines for application submission

Please note: Ethics at UOM is changing - the Human Ethics Workbench in Themis will be disabled on 5th October and replaced by Infonetica Ethics Review Management (ERM) system on 6th October 2020. Please enrol in the ERM training (see Staff news/The Brew) and use ERM from the 6th October.

From November 2020 a new ethics process will be in place. Low to negligible risk (LNR) committees will replace HEAGs, and Greater than low risk (GTLR) committees will replace HRECs (HESC). Each academic division will have Research Ethics Advisors (REAs) who will conduct a pre-review of applications submitted in Infonetica ERM. Applications will then only be sent to one committee for review/approval.

Process until 5th October 2020: Ethics applications completed by researchers and students in the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health (MSPGH) must be submitted to MSPGH Human Ethics Advisory Group (HEAG). Researchers must submit their applications through Themis and upload all attached documents in PDF format. Project applications and program applications reviewed by MSPGH HEAG will be recommended for approval and will then be reviewed by the Health Sciences Human Ethics Sub-Committee (HESC) for final approval. Minimal risk ethics applications and project within program ethics applications will be reviewed and approved by the MSPGH HEAG.
