Health Research Ethics Authority Act Questionnaire

The Health Research Ethics Authority Act (the Act) provides the Health Research Ethics Authority (HREA) with the authority to ensure that health research involving human subjects in Newfoundland and Labrador is conducted in an ethical manner. Click here to view the HREA Act

The Department of Health and Community Services is dedicated to finding ways to update the Act to better support the HREA and Health Research Ethics Board (HREB) achieve their mandates.

As a member of the research community, we welcome your perspective on how to enhance the Act. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please note the information you share will not be attributed to you personally. The information you provide may be used to inform potential changes to the Act.

If you would like to follow-up on this survey or have any questions, please contact Maggie Power, Program and Policy Development Specialist, (MaggiePower@gov.nl.ca, 729-4084).

The Health Research Ethics Board (HREB) is not a single entity; rather it is comprised of three separate subcommittees made up of volunteers who review different types of research ethics applications of varying complexity. Currently, there are Clinical Trials, Non-Clinical Trials, and Genetics/Genomics subcommittees.

Thank you for your input!
