*Special Note: In person workshop sessions are subject to local current public health advice and may be transferred to a virtual session format should there be any risk to staff and students. PRAXIS Australia shall have no liability for any costs incurred by participants that relate to changes in location/format of the workshops as a result of changed public health warnings. 

Undertaking a self evaluation process is highly recommended for all kinds of committees.

However, while the work of HRECs is guided by the National Statement and registered HRECs are required to report on basic aspects of their activities to the NHMRC, there are currently no national guidelines or tools to assist HRECs to review the quality of their function.

PRAXIS Australia Ltd has developed a self evaluation resource to help HRECs assess their performance, and identify their strengths and areas to improve.
