The HREBA Cancer Committee has adopted the CAREB/N2 Standard Operating Procedures. These procedures ensure that the Board protects the rights and safety of study participants.
All new adult oncology studies are required to use the HREBA main consent template.
The HREBA Cancer Committee is now receiving all new adult and pediatric cancer studies from across Alberta which require ethics review. This significant step continues the harmonization of the work of Alberta’s research ethics boards. Cancer studies which have been approved by other ethics boards in the province will be transferred to HREBA. Click on the title above for more information.
The Health Research Ethics Board of Alberta (HREBA), housed at Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions, is the provincial board which reviews the ethical protocols and standards of research studies. There are three committees which examine these studies: the Cancer, Clinical Trials, and Community Health Committees.
HREBA’s Three Committees
