Epworth Research QMS Implementation and Maintenance Protocol

Research policy

This policy applies to any person conducting research involving Epworth patients, staff and/or resources.

The Epworth Research Development and Governance Unit (RDGU) has implemented a clinical research quality management system (QMS) across all Epworth sites. Underpinning the QMS is a suite of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that underpin the objective of upholding the highest standards of research practice in accordance with Australian and International standards.

All researchers and support staff at Epworth are required to be familiar with these resources and conduct research in accordance with the relevant SOPs.

Please contact the RDGU for any queries or suggestions for improvements: [email protected]
