Research Ethics Board (REB) Integration

At Providence, we are committed to supporting research activities in any clinical or non-clinical area that promotes our vision of giving the people we care for the knowledge and confidence to stay healthy and safe at home, for as long as possible.

The Providence Healthcare REB has integrated with those of St. Joseph’s Health Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital under the new network.

The newly integrated REB will continue to promote ethical and safe human research committed to advancing knowledge translation, quality improvement, basic science and medical care. It will also provide greater infrastructure, support and shared knowledge for those in the research community. The integration will aid in the ease and ability of collaboration amongst researchers across the three sites.

All future projects requiring REB review and approval will now be directed to researchethics@smh.ca. All currently approved projects will maintain their approval status and expiration dates.
