Submission requirements for Research Ethics and Governance Applications within the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital & Health Service (CHHHS).

Far North Queensland Human Research Ethics Committee (FNQ HREC, EC00157)

For general information about ethics approval click here.

The FNQ HREC’s jurisdiction covers all sites that fall within the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service (CHHHS) and the Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service (TCHHHS). The FNQ HREC is a registered committee and cannot review applications.

All ethics applications (HREA & QA Activity) must be submitted in Ethical Review Manager (ERM). The link to ERM is https://au.forms.ethicalreviewmanager.com/. If you previously had an account in the old system, Ethics Online Forms then your log in details for ERM are the same.

HREA submission requirements

Instructions on how to submit a Human Research Ethics Application (HREA) via ERM are provided in the FAQ section of the ERM website. The researcher’s Quick Guide and training presentation can be found under the Templates section.

Please download the submission advice and requirements from the Attachments section below. Please ensure that the checklist is completed and included as part of the submission.

Quality Assurance (QA) Activity submission requirements

To assist you to determine whether you project is a QA activity or research, please read the 2014 NHMRC Ethical Considerations in Quality Assurance document included below in the Attachments section. If you are still unsure if your project is a Quality Activity  or research, please ask your supervisor who can clarify this for you.

If the proposed sites are within both the Cairns and Hinterland and Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Services, both application forms must be completed.

QA Activity applications are considered out of formal session by the Chair of the FNQ HREC and are to be submitted in ERM. The application forms, submission advice and requirements can be downloaded from the Attachments section below.
