Research Proposals Approval Committee

The mandate of the Research Proposals Approval Committee (RPAC) is to review all research proposals that require access to Eastern Health resources and/or access to data that is under Eastern Health’s custody or control, including personal information, personal health information and human biological specimens.

RPAC employs a resource-use lens to ensure that Eastern Health is adequately compensated for its involvement in research and a privacy lens to ensure that appropriate data collection, use, disclosure, transfer, storage, retention and destruction processes are in place.

All research involving Eastern Health data or resources is required to have both Health Research Ethics Board (HREB) and RPAC approval. The RPAC committee meets monthly to review applications approved by the HREB.
