Comment: Privacy legislation and research

Kerry J Breen and Sandra M Hacker
Med J Aust 2002; 177 (9): 523-524.

Comment: It is unfortunate that a valuable research project has apparently been made more difficult or delayed by the combination of complex new privacy law and longer-standing inefficiencies in the ethical review of multicentre research proposals. Both are issues with which the Australian Health Ethics Committee (AHEC) is grappling at present.
