Research Governance

Our Research Governance Committee aims to support staff and students in the conduct of high quality research.

The Research Governance Committee (RGC) has developed a number of useful tools for researchers including A Guide to Good Research Practice, face to face training for all new students, online training for all new staff, an audit program and a risk management plan.

In addition, the RGC delivers the Monash Partners accredited ICH Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training in conjunction with the Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation.

A Guide to Good Research Practice

The purpose of A Guide to Good Research Practice is to ensure that medical research conducted within our School meets the highest scientific and ethical standards.

SPHPM Research Governance Audits of Research Projects

It is the aim of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine (SPHPM) to ensure our research is conducted at the highest standard and that our working culture emphasises all of the attributes needed to support this goal. In support of this aim we have an audit process to ensure research conducted within the School complies with SPHPM's A Guide to Good Research Practice.
