VLCR Governance - Overview

The Registry contains identifiable information. It is critical that this information is housed in a highly secure environment and that it be accessed only by authorised registry personnel.  This Registry has been developed within a secure environment at Monash University. Coupled to this, each participating site must undergo a stringent human research ethical approval process prior to their inclusion in the project.

Identifiable data is not released from the Registry. It is vital that the Registry is managed to ensure that data is kept secure and that information is used appropriately. Data is sent from each contributing site to the central Registry, where there are strict arrangements in place to ensure that the registry is properly governed.
