Training is an essential element of research governance. Anyone involved in research should have training commensurate with their involvement and the type of research they plan to conduct.
Alfred Health provides opportunities for training and continuing education sessions in ethics and research conduct. Various workshops and forums are held throughout the year. These are advertised via the News Round, this website and by email.
Researchers can also contact the Office of Ethics and Research Governance for individual appointments to discuss their ethics applications. The staff are also available to present topics at departmental meetings upon request.
Monash Partners offers GCP training. View the flyer for more details.
Other hospital departments may provide education sessions that are useful for research, for example CERNER training for medical records access and use.
