RCH takes Research Integrity extremely seriously and has numerous processes in place to ensure the rights and safety of research participants are protected.
RCH is committed to creating an environment that promotes responsible conduct by having standards of excellence, trustworthiness, and lawfulness. Research at RCH is conducted in compliance with research codes and policies and staff display professional conduct and take personal responsibility for their research.
The RCH Campus supports the NHMRC Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research and all supporting guidance documents and conducts all human research according to the NHMRC National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research . The values described in the National Statement are: respect for human beings, research merit and integrity, justice, and beneficence. These values help to shape the relationship with our research participants as one of trust, mutual responsibility and ethical equality.
There are several support services on the RCH Campus which promote Research Integrity and Excellence. For a list of these services see the For Researches page.
The RCH Campus promotes its outstanding research activities via the Campus Council, the Campus Research Committee and the Campus Education Committee which oversee our popular Campus Research and Education Week
