SESLHD is committed to the highest standard of integrity in research.  All human research activity proposed to take place at SESLHD sites must be approved by a Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC).

The Research Ethics and Governance team is your liaison to the HREC and will help you with your ethics application, amendments and ongoing monitoring. 

Governance approval is also required before commencement of research, please see the Governance page for further information.
