All research conducted within Western Health requires review and approval by the provincial Health Research Ethics Authority (HREA).  Applications for research review by the HREA are available here.

Once research is approved by the HREA, principal investigators will then have to submit their research to the Western Health Research Review Committee. The application for research review can be downloaded here . Through this research process, Western Health will decide if a proposed study can be accommodated and/or of benefit to Western Health.

Anyone requiring assistance with the research ethics review process can contact Tracey Wells-Stratton, Regional Manager - Research and Evaluation, at (709)784-6801 or  

Thank you for your ongoing support of research within Western Health.
