It is imperative for researchers to identify relevant costs and requirements for research funding and identify whether grants will be sought prior to seeking ethical clearance and Site Specific Assessment (SSA) authorisation.
Clinicians, researchers and principal investigators must identify and document the financial support needed for their research project.
It is the responsibility of the principal investigators to identify the items associated with their research project that could incur costs.
Research costs can include clinician/researcher time, use of Metro South Health facilities and resources, printing, postage, access to internal or external expertise (eg biostatisticians), diagnostic procedures and publication.
