On A Practical Note...

WesternREM (WREM) Ethics Training

On September 7, 2017 the Office of Human Research Ethics (OHRE) launched its new online protocol submission platform: Western Research Ethics Manager (WesternREM, or WREM). This should better streamline the ethics submission process, and will address a number of concerns/issues that users had experienced with ROMEO.

The OHRE has provided additional training tools and guides which are available on their web site. There will also be a training session at Ivey for faculty and PhD students who were unable to attend one of the hands-on training sessions provided by the OHRE:

Monday, September 18th
3-4 pm
Room 2125

Please RSVP to Kathy Laid if you plan to attend.
