Research governance

Three researchers at table, examining the data

To effectively manage the scientific, ethical and governance review, approval, conduct and monitoring of human research, the Director General of Health has issued an operational directive to implement the WA Health Research Governance Framework. WA public health organisations must establish adequate resources, structures and practices consistent with the implementation of this framework.

The framework is outlined in OD 0411/12 WA Health Research Governance Policy and Procedures 2012 (external site) and is supported by OD 0446/13 WA Health Research Governance and Single Ethical Review Standard Operating Procedures 2013 (external site).
