All research conducted at Bolton Clarke or by Bolton Clarke staff requires review of the merit and rigour of the research proposal and protocol. In addition, research that has any perceived or actual impact on clients, staff or resources in the clinical area requires support and sponsorship from Bolton Clarke At Home Support Services, Residential Aged Care and Retirement Living.
The Bolton Clarke Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) protects the welfare and rights of individuals, groups or communities who participate in research projects conducted within Bolton Clarke. If a project involves Bolton Clarke clients or staff, it is preferred that ethical review be undertaken by the Bolton Clarke HREC before submission to other ethic committees.
