The GV Health Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) acts as a committee of ethical review for research conducted at GV Health. The Committee’s primary role is to protect the welfare and rights of participants in research. As part of this, it is the responsibility of the HREC to review new research proposals, monitor existing research previously approved by the Committee and maintain a register of all research projects. The Committee operates in accordance with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007, updated 2018).

The Committee meets every second month, except for the December meeting. Applications must be received two weeks prior to the meeting. No late applications will be considered.
