The Research Governance Service (RGS) is an interactive, secure web portal that assists Western Australian public health organisations in managing the ethics and governance processes for human research projects.
The centralised system enables researchers, sponsors, Human Research Ethics Committees, ethics and governance offices and site administrators to manage and track the governance of research though the entire research project lifecycle. This includes ethics approval, site (also called governance) authorisation, monitoring, complaints, publications and reporting.
This RGS online training course is designed to assist researchers and sponsors to navigate the RGS through the submission, ethics and governance review and approval processes for proposed projects as well as the monitoring, publications and complaints processes for approved research. It is highly recommended that participants unfamiliar with ethics and governance terminology and processes complete the RETProgram Good Clinical Practice (GCP) course prior to starting this course.
