Below are some links to important guidelines for conducting Clinical Research in Australia.
Another useful resource will be the Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) you plan to submit your project to for review. We recommend contacting the HREC (or associated research office) early in the development of your Clinical Research protocol. They will be able to provide further information on the submission process, as well as local policies and requirements.
Often, additional resources pertaining to clinical trials pharamcies, radiation exposure requirements, etc., will also be available from the office that you are submitting your research projet for review.
The National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.
This is a set of guidelines for any researcher in Australia conducting research with human participants. The guidelines are also relevant to those involved in ethical review or research governance, or study participants.
The National Statement promotes ethical human research that involves participants being accorded respect and protection.
The National Statement clarifies the roles and responsibilities of institutions and researchers (in the design, conduct and dissemination of results of human research), and review bodies (i.e. the Human Research Ethics Committee). The National Statement should be used when designing, reviewing and conducting research that involves human participants in Australia.
