Ethics and Governance 

All research involving humans conducted in the NSW public health system must be ethically and scientifically reviewed and approved by an accredited Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC).

In addition, all human research that takes place in NSW Public Health Organisations, or that requires support from a NSW Public Health Organisation in the form of access to participants, tissue or data requires site authorisation.



A number of publications exist that provide insight into rural health and research that may inform your work.
