26 February 2021 - Recent update to forms on RGS

The WA Specific Module (WASM) and WA Health Ethics Application Form (WAHEAF) have been updated to reflect the changes made to the Guardianship Act.  Please note, all WASM and WAHEAFs that were in progress have been automatically updated with new questions and will require review and editing prior to submission.   If a WASM or WAHEAF was submitted to HREC prior to 26/2/2021 and is sent back (AIRd) to the researcher after 26/2/2021, these forms will also be automatically updated and will require review and editing prior to re-submission.
