Monitoring and audits

Monitoring program

All ongoing projects which have human research ethics approval from Curtin are monitored for annual and completion reports.

An annual report must be submitted every year on the anniversary of approval in accordance with the NH&MRC National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research. Failure to submit an annual report means your project does not have current approval.

A completion report must be submitted on completion of the project in accordance with the NH&MRC National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.

Auditing program

All ongoing projects which have human research ethics approval from Curtin may be audited in accordance with the NH&MRC National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.

Projects are audited to ensure research is conducted ethically, legally, safely and in compliance with the protocol and conditions approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee.

Projects are selected to be audited based on:

  • Request by the Human Research Ethics Committee
  • Risk
  • Random selection
  • A complaint

If your project has been selected to be audited you will be contacted by the Clinical Research Monitor who will provide you with more details.
