Research governance is a framework through which Adventist HealthCare Limited is accountable for the research it authorises to be conducted at its sites.  These sites include Sydney Adventist Hospital (the San), San Day Surgery Hornsby, the Australasian Research Institute and San Diagnostics & Pharmacy.  

The process ensures that all research conforms to the relevant institutional, jurisdictional and national standards and laws.  Research governance addresses protection of research participants, the safety and quality of research, privacy and confidentiality, financial probity, legal and regulatory matters, risk management and monitoring arrangements and promotes good research culture and practice.

Ethical review and governance review are two distinct processes relating to the ethical approval and institutional authorisation of research involving humans.  They are both components of research governance.
