Research Ethical Approval
The School of Nursing and Midwifery Research Ethics Committee (SNMREC) is a granting ethics committee for "low risk projects" carried out by the School's staff and students. This ethics committee works in co-ordination with the Faculty of Health Sciences Research Ethics Committee (FREC). Students and researchers should review the diagram below before selecting the appropriate committee or mode of application.
Applicants who select the incorrect pathway are at risk of experiencing significant delays in their ethical approval.
Algorithm for selecting the correct pathway for ethical approval
The algorithm above applies to staff and student research projects. Please note ALL low risk projects approved by an external committee other than JREC must come to the SNMREC for Chair approval after full approval has been granted.
