The objective of the National Approach to Single Ethical Review of Multi-centre Research (National Approach) formally known as the Harmonisation of Multi-Centre Ethical Review (HoMER) is to enable the recognition of a single ethical and scientific review of multi-centre human research within and/or across Australian jurisdictions.
Human Research Ethics Portal
The Human Research Ethics Portal contains information on the National Approach including links to relevant information for researchers, HREC members, and institutional staff and administrators.
Current information on the National Approach can be found at http://hrep.nhmrc.gov.au
