Research and Ethics Committee

Our Research and Ethics Committee has been established in alignment with the National Health Research Ethics Council. We were inaugurated on 21 February 2017 and have provisional accreditation from the Department of Health.

What is the main role of the committee?

To approve research being conducted within Life Healthcare, and to ensure the protection of the company, employees and patients during any study.

How does it work?

Individual functions have been grouped to establish their own Research and Scientific committees that will review the research proposals using expert knowledge, prior to submission to the Research and Ethics Committee.
