The Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN) has a strong reputation for the quality of its scientific and medical research. For further information, please view our Application Type Decision Aid (PDF 275 KB) for guidance on what type of application should be used.

To enhance our reputation we have now established an environment that promotes collaboration in research and improvement: SALHN Research Hub, a critical mass of research and clinical trial service.

We encourage all researchers to contact the team regarding upcoming Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) and Governance applications.  We aim to provide an approach that promotes easily accessible advice and produces a culture of collaboration.

To deliver on that objective, we can now offer the following three opportunities for face-to-face/video meetings, by appointment to discuss your research:

  1. Internal: You can visit our hub in the FMC library for a meeting in our private meeting room
  2. Virtual: We can meet via MS Teams

To schedule a meeting, please email or call (08) 8204 6061 and provide detail on the nature of the meeting (ie ethics and/or governance).

SALHN Research hub is responsible for the governance of research activities carried out across SALHN, promoting high quality, accountable and responsible research, compliant with national ethical and governance standards and guidelines.
