Responsible conduct of research

Responsibilities outlined in the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research

The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research establishes a framework for responsible research conduct in Australia. The Code simply and succinctly stipulates the high-level principles, responsibilities and expectations that apply to all research. It is written specifically for researchers and institutions. Compliance with the Code is a prerequisite for receipt of National Health and Medical Research Council and Australian Research Council Funding.

The PHRN require researchers to uphold the principles of responsible research conduct in all aspects of their linked data research.

PHRN is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and has taken steps to mitigate the risk of transmission to our staff. In line with advice on social distancing, all staff at PHRN program office have moved to work from home. Staff are currently all working in line with our usual work patterns and our landline numbers are being diverted to staff at home, so will either be answered, or it will be possible to leave a voicemail. Please bear with us as we move to this new way of working. We will be participating in any meetings we need to attend remotely via Zoom. We are reviewing our work plans in light of the current situation and will make changes as required to ensure we are serving our network, researchers and community in this changing situation.
