Research governance

Research governance refers to the processes used by institutions to ensure that they are accountable for the research conducted under their auspices. After obtaining ethics approval, research governance approval must be obtained by submitting a site-specific assessment (SSA) application to all sites where research will be conducted.

All Health Translation Queensland partners are accountable for the research conducted under their auspices and have research governance offices responsible for the oversight of research projects. The SSA is generally only required at public (and the Mater) health organisations.

If you want to conduct a research project at a Health Translation Queensland partner organisation, we recommend you contact their research governance office.

The following do not require completion of a SSA but will have their own processes for research governance.

  • University of Queensland

  • Queensland University of Technology

  • Queensland Institute for Medical Research Berghofer

  • Translational Research Institute

  • CSIRO e-Health
