The Parenting Research Centre established a Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) in 2010. The committee has two main areas of responsibility:
- to consider the ethical implications of proposed research to be conducted by the Parenting Research Centre
- to ensure that the ethical standards of such research are maintained in accordance with the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.
The primary role of the HREC is to ensure that research undertaken at the Parenting Research Centre gives adequate consideration to the welfare, rights, beliefs, perceptions, customs and cultural heritage of participants, both individually and collectively. The committee only looks at internal research applications. The HREC also has responsibility for the establishment, implementation and review of procedures for evaluating, certifying and monitoring the acceptable ethical conduct of this research.
Membership of the HREC is appointed in accordance with the categories as required by the National Statement and is registered with National Health and Medical Research Council.
