Research Ethics and Governance

All research studies undertaken with St John Ambulance (Western Australia) are required to comply with the National Health and Medical Research Council – National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007) and have ethics approval from either a Western Australian university or Western Australian hospital (and in some cases both) Human Research Ethics Committee.

In addition, all studies are reviewed, approved and monitored by the St John Research Governance Committee.
