Clinical case study endorsement process

To conduct a clinical case study, researchers are required to obtain endorsement from Research Ethics.

Obtaining ethics approval for clinical case studies

1. Complete the clinical case study form

You are required to complete the Clinical Case Study and the HREC form (PDF, 1.3MB).

Please note: Before you submit your application to the HREC Coordinator, follow the next three steps.

2. Obtain consent from participants

You are then required to obtain consent from participants with the Case Study Report Participant Consent Form (PDF, 216KB) and Request to publish case study information sheet (PDF, 38KB), and attach them to your Clinical Case Study and the HREC form. 

3. Does the clinical case study involve using clinical images?

In addition to obtaining consent to publish the case study, consent must also be obtained from participants using the Consent to Clinical Digital Images Form. Please contact our Research Office to access this document. Attach this form to your Clinical Case Study and the HREC form. 

4. Submit documents

Submit the Clinical Case Study and the HREC form, and other supporting documents, through the Ethical Review Manager website. Refer to the additional contacts page for ethics assistance.
