If you are submitting a research project that involves the Cochlear Implant Clinic, you will need approval from the Cochlear Implant Clinic Research Steering Group prior to submission of the HREC application and / or SSA application.

Approval from the Cochlear Implant Clinic Research Steering Group will include a signed Declaration of Supporting department which is then submitted with the HREC application and / or SSA application.

The Cochlear Implant Clinic Research Steering Committee will meet prior to the HREC meeting.

To submit an application to the Cochlear Implant Clinic Research Steering Committee:

1. Application Form

Submit the following documents

2. Timeframes for submission

For research projects that the Eye and Ear HREC will be the Reviewing HREC, submit the application 3 weeks prior to the HREC submission date to allow sufficient time for the Steering Committee to consider the application.

For research projects that an HREC other than the Eye and Ear HREC will be the Reviewing HREC, and the research team will submit an SSA Form, submit the application  at any time although it is recommended that you  submit 3 weeks prior to the Reviewing HREC’s submission date to allow sufficient time for the Steering Committee to consider the application and to make any required amendments before the application is submitted to the Reviewing HREC.

3.  Submission procedure

Submit the electronic version of the Application Form and attachments by email.

4. Review procedure

Submissions are received by the CIC Clinic Co-ordinator.  The Co-ordinator will work with the CIC research liaison audiologists to assess the research demands on the CIC and if necessary, seek initial clarification from researchers about potential demands.  The Co-ordinator then provides CIC Research Steering Group members with the documentation required to make a decision on the impacts on the clinic resources and patient groups.  The Co-ordinator will provide the researchers with a decision and signed HOSD form if approved or feedback and suggested remedies if the project cannot be supported.
