Single site QA & Minimal Risk Applications

Single site research projects include research projects that use data/specimens/or seek participants from one site only.

Your project is single site if you are asking Barwon Health to review the project for one site only. Barwon Health is considered a single site, which includes all Barwon Health owned locations such as Barwon Health North and McKellar Centre.

Single site Minimal risk and Quality Assurance (QA) projects are reviewed by RDU without Committee Review so can be submitted at any time.

Read all of the points in the process (including information drop-downs) before commencing with your application. Note that the numbering system is arbitrary and that multiple steps can be undertaken in parallel to save you time.

If you’re not sure whether your research is suitable for a QA/ Minimal risk application, please visit the how to prepare an application page or complete the ‘Level of Risk Checklist’. You may also contact [email protected] with any queries. 

All application submission, feedback, correspondence, information requests and approvals occur within Ethical Review Manager (ERM).

You must use the QA (Quality Assurance) VIC Form for submission of these research applications in ERM:

  • Minimal risk
  • Clinical Audit
  • Quality Assurance
  • Evaluation Activities

Note: Do not use the HREA form.
