NH Research Review Committee

Research at Northern Health requires two approvals to proceed:

  • Research Ethics Approval
  • Northern Health Operational Approval

Research ethics and operational approvals can be pursued simultaneously. Once the conditions for research ethics and operational approval are met, a letter of approval from the Research Review Committee will be emailed to the Principal Investigator and the Northern Health managers who provided operational approval for the research.
