The University of Manitoba has established policies and guidelines that protect participants and provide support to members of the research community on the conduct of research involving humans. University policies are transparent and members of the research community are accountable to such policies when leading and participating in research.
Quality of research is attained in part through collaborative educational and oversight activities. Reporting to the Vice-President Research and International Office, the Research Quality Management (RQM) unit is part of the Office of Research Ethics and Compliance (OREC) team. RQM assists the Research Ethics Boards (REBs) with post-approval oversight activities through consultation, site visit (audits) and meetings with researchers (Faculty members and students). RQM also provides support through facilitation of educational events. Through collaboration with members of the research community, RQM helps support best practices in the conduct of research with humans.
