Single-site and other research projects
Single site research projects to be undertaken at Latrobe Regional Hospital and sites of health services affiliated with the Latrobe Regional Hospital HREC, require ethical approval from the Latrobe Regional Hospital HREC prior to commencement. An alternative application process is outlined on this website for multi-centre research projects that are eligible for streamlined ethical review, as well as low and negligible risk or quality applications.
Latrobe Regional Hospital requires the standard online National Ethics Application Form (NEAF) to be used for single site and other research projects. This can be accessed on the Online Forms website.

The research application involves both an electronic submission plus one hard-copy of the completed application forma and all attachments. This should be submitted at least four weeks prior to the HREC meeting at which you wish it to be considered.
