When a research project is being led by a non-Auckland DHB researcher and there is not an Auckland DHB co-investigator then the non-Auckland DHB researcher must enlist a relevant Auckland DHB employee as either a supervisor or clinical partner or contact.
The Auckland DHB employee will ensure that your research is ethically approved (where relevant), that you are aware of all the relevant policies and procedures for the Auckland DHB, and will endeavour to ensure that you adhere to them.
The selection of a research supervisor or clinical partner or contact is based on the complexity of the study and the discipline involved.
In most circumstances it is appropriate that the clinical director of the service or nurse leader or equivalent where the research is to be undertaken is consulted with.
After discussing the project with you, they will nominate an appropriate person to act as your research supervisor or clinical partner or Auckland DHB contact.
If you are a non-Auckland DHB researcher and are part of the research team and will be accessing Auckland DHB facilities or patients, you need to organise with the principal investigator to complete an ID and parking name badge form and a confidentiality form from the RAC site.
Once all the documents have been signed and processed, the HR department will contact the relevant person with instructions on how you can collect or obtain your identity card.
