Research Ethics

The HREC ensures that any human research conducted by The Cairnmillar Institute staff, students or associates is designed and conducted in accordance with the NHMRC Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007); and is ethically reviewed and monitored in accordance with the NHMRC National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research(2007). (NHMRC HREC ID: EC00452).

All research involving humans at The Cairnmillar Institute must meet appropriate scholarly or scientific standards, and those conducting research are trained and qualified in appropriate research methodologies and applications, or in the case of being trained, are suitably supervised.

If there are any concerns or complaints about the HREC’s review process or any aspect of a research project, such as the way it is being conducted or any questions about the rights of participants they may be directed to the Secretary to the Human Research Ethics Committee at (see contact details below).

Concerns or complaints regarding HREC’s review process or the conduct of a project will be directed to the Executive Director of The Cairnmillar Institute or their nominee to assess and investigate the complaint. Following investigation, recommendations will be communicated to the complainant and the HREC. Where a complaint has not been resolved by this process the Executive Director will refer the matter to an external mediator agreed upon by all parties for further resolution.
