Onsite Monitoring

Effective January 2016, the Mater Research Governance Office now conducts an on-site monitoring service. This process will be used as one of the mechanisms in monitoring research projects at Mater, to ensure the research study is conducted in accordance with the principles of Good Clinical Practice, and adheres to the currently approved research protocol and institutional requirements. On-site monitoring will also help identify areas of improvement to increase research integrity for research conducted at Mater.

The Mater Research Governance Office will determine the level of monitoring for an individual project depending on the nature of the research, level of risk, complexity of project and regulatory requirements that underpin the research. The determination of the extent and nature of the monitoring visit will be based on the risk assessment allocated to the research study. Mater staff can refer to the Procedure for Monitoring Clinical Research Studies for more information (accessible from the Mater Document Centre).
