The success of any research study depends on highly trained study teams

The Office for Research supports the ongoing education and training of its researchers and study staff by providing a range of education and training options.

Each study team should have effective and efficient processes and have a mind-set that is absolutely focused on protecting patients’ rights and assurance of data integrity as well as the day to day conduct of the study. To achieve this, each member of the research team must be appropriately qualified and experienced for their role on the research study and must participate in ongoing training and education appropriate to their role.

We also encourage researchers to provide suggestions for potential education sessions that may be of benefit and ask that you email your suggestions to researchgovernance@mh.org.au.

Important information and updates due to COVID-19

In line with the Royal Melbourne Hospital's response to the COVID-19 situation, including the requirement to implement social distancing measures to the greatest extent possible, the following interim arrangements have been implemented in regard to training:
