Monash Health is pleased to be participating in the NHMRC Good Practice Pilot for Site Assessment.
The Research Support Services team are here to assist researchers and sponsors with facilitating efficient site authorisation and welcomes feedback on processes which may facilitate this occurring.
Monash Health encourages sponsors to inform Research Support Services as early as site selection, so that our team may engage with the researchers for early action items such as supporting department requirements, review of legal agreements and insurance etc. In addition, parallel HREC and Site Authorisation review is preferred.
