How to Prepare an Application

An application is required for any proposed research project including Quality Assurance (QA), quality improvement, or audit activities, where there is an intention to publish or otherwise present the data beyond the hospital staff. Applications are assessed by REGI and relevant committees to ensure they meet ethical, governance, regulatory, legal, budget and resource requirements.

REGI only accepts applications via ERM (Ethics Review Manager).
