Audit Based Research at SALHN
Audit based research at Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN) has no patient contact and involves accessing patient’s medical records to collect data to answer a hypothesis.
There are two types of audits:
- Retrospective – accessing patients records between a date range that is in the past
- Prospective – accessing patient records between a date range from submission your application to any date in the future.
If the audit is prospective, please submit a low and negligible risk application.
Audit based research applications are reviewed out of session and do not go to full committee.
