As COVID-19 continues to impact day-to-day business, RBWH has established an approach to research activity during the COVID-19 pandemic intended to support researchers and optimise research activity, particularly decisions about continuation of research projects during a time when COVID-19 is prevalent in the community.
The following documents are intended to support consideration of individual projects at a service line/ departmental level, including adaptation of project design to mitigate risks associated with COVID-19.
These are provided as guidance. Decisions regarding continuation of research will be at the discretion of RBWH service line and clinical directors.
Please provide a copy of the completed and authorised assessment form to the RBWH Research Office at RBWH_Grants@health.qld.gov.au
We continue to support our researchers on an ongoing basis through this challenging period, so will maintain FAQs on this website.
If you have any COVID-19 related questions not addressed by the guidance, please get in touch by emailing RBWH_Grants@health.qld.gov.au.
