Flinders Research NewsChanges to Social and Behavioural Human Research Ethics Committee submissions
The Flinders Social and Behavioural Human Research Ethics Committee (SBREC) have brought in two changes that will take effect from 1 July 2018.
To minimise the number of forms that applicants need to submit, the Low / Negligible Risk Assessment Form has been merged with the Application Form. All applicants are now required to complete the risk assessment at the front of the new application form. This section has undergone minimisation from the original Low / Negligible Risk Assessment Form.
The second change is to the Response to Conditional Approval and Deferral forms. For student led projects all conditional approval responses and deferral responses now must be signed by the student and student’s supervisor. If the principal researcher is a staff member, then the forms do not need to be signed before submission.
The new forms are now available for download at the Guidelines, Forms and Templates webpage on the Human Ethics section, Research Development and Support.
If you have any queries or require assistance in relation to these new forms, please do not hesitate to contact Andrea Mather or Rae Tyler on email@example.com.
