Multi-site Clinical Trials - National Mutual Acceptance System

Latrobe Regional Hospital is a participating member in the National Mutual Acceptance (NMA) system for mutual acceptance of scientific and ethical review for multi-centre clinical trials.

Under this system eligible multi-centre research projects are only required to have one ethical and scientific review conducted by a Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC), certified by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). As such Latrobe Regional Hospital accepts ethics reviews undertaken by one accredited reviewing HREC in this system.

In addition, Latrobe Regional Hospital utilises the Site Specific Assessment (SSA) online form to address research governance and site specific authorisation for local organisation sites prior to the project being able to commence.  The SSA Form addresses the resources, study budget details, site-specific policies, and declarations from departments. 

Instructions for applications, links to the online forms website and help information can be found at:  

Submission of research applications requires both an electronic submission and a hard-copy submission.
