The Griffith University Human Research Ethics Committee (GUHREC) advises the University on ethical standards for human research and assesses how well these standards are being met in the conduct of all human research undertaken by the University. The GUHREC also evaluates the merits of the studies proposed by its academic staff and research students, and determines whether these studies are justifiable in terms of their ethical approach and potential contribution to academic knowledge.
The Committee is dedicated to ensuring that all research meets the expectations of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007, Updated 2018) and the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2018).
A Pastoral Care member is defined as: A person who performs a pastoral care role in a community, for example, an Aboriginal elder, a minister of religion.
The Pastoral Care member is a volunteer position; however, it does provide an opportunity for people who perform a pastoral care role in the community to gain insights about the ethical conduct of research and to contribute to important research projects. Griffith University is committed to providing training opportunities to Committee members, and professional development and networking opportunities will be provided.
Committee members must have good computer literacy, be able to access documents and attend Committee meetings online, and be willing to raise questions and contribute their opinions during meetings. The Committee usually meets 11 times annually online via Microsoft Teams.
