About the Event
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)‘s National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research sets the requirements for the ethical design, review and conduct of human research in Australia. It was updated in 2023 with the changes taking effect from 1 January 2024.
At this Australian Sensitive Data Interest Group (AUSDIG) meeting, you’ll learn about the development of the National Statement and the recent changes to chapter 2.1 (risk and benefit) and section 5 (research governance and ethics review).
