Impact Submissions and Approval

General Process

All research studies which will use Shared Health services or facilities must be submitted for impact assessment. These studies may include, but are not limited to, clinical research studies which are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, grant-funded, and investigator-initiated projects.

This application process oversees all research related activities under Shared Health, including subcommittees of the the former HSC Department of Research and the Shared Health Research Support Office. This process is also currently assisting the Winnipeg Research Access & Approval Committee to help provide a streamlined and standardized approach for impact assessments.

If you are unsure if your project needs to be submitted for Shared Health impact assessment, please contact the Shared Health Research and Innovation Office.

All impact submissions and subsequent required documents are to be submitted to
