Health alert: Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)


Research may be publicised through both internal and external channels (i.e. via web pages, conference presentations, poster displays and multimedia displays), as well as via publication in peer-reviewed journals and/or relevant policy documents.

It is the researcher’s responsibility to ensure that disseminated information is complete, accurate and unambiguous, and that the contributions of all team members are appropriately acknowledged. Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) approval or a formal ethics waiver is required for any work to be presented or disseminated outside of Queensland Health.

Tips to consider:

  • Discuss with the Head of Department or supervisor/line manager regarding opportunities for attending and presenting at conferences, travel support and leave processes
  • Link with a research mentor to determine the best methods and avenues for disseminating the research
  • A research mentor may also provide assistance with the preparation of publications and/or conference presentations
  • Guidelines and checklists are available for you to follow when writing publications, including specific information for different types of research projects (i.e. case studies, literature reviews and/or cohort studies)

Please note: publications are the responsibility of the researcher and approval must be sought by a relevant Metro South Health delegate before publishing. The Metro South Health Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) does not take responsibility for publications and a letter of support may be requested from Metro South Health Executive.
