Research Ethics

Research Ethics Committees (RECs) are a fundamental cornerstone in the overall process of  health research governance. RECs are responsible for the independent assessment of all ethical considerations of a research study before it can commence. They are also responsible for ongoing oversight of research studies when amendments or changes to the original protocol or other relevant study documentation are required, or when safety issues arise.
