HDEC Futures Survey for Service Users

Closed 24 Jun 2023

Opened 24 May 2023


The Ethics team at Manatū Hauora are reviewing how we do things to make sure that our ethics committees are run efficiently, well supported and resilient. Part of this is thinking about the future of the research ethics system and where we should be heading in the next 5-10 years.

We are at the start of this process and interested in how the system is currently running and ideas about how it could change so that the system provides the appropriate ethical review of health research and meets your needs. This survey aims to seek your opinion on the current system and will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete, but may take longer depending on length of answers provided.

The data will be collected anonymously. It will be stored securely and only available to the Ethics team for aggregation and analysis. Any report or summary of findings will present the data only in an aggregated form to ensure that it remains anonymous.

If you decide to sign-up to receive further information on the work of the Ethics team, your submission will no longer be anonymous, but we will not use that information for any other purpose.
