How to join

If you are a clinician or will be entering data for your own patients select the ‘clinician’ role. If you are a support staff member or will be entering data on behalf of other clinicians select the ‘clinical assistant’ role.
Acquire ethics approval
All sites must have ethics approval from a local human research ethics committee (HREC) before using the Registries. You may need to apply for approval if your site:
- Is in a country that is not yet using the Registries
- Requires site-specific ethics approval
- Needs ethics approval for a specific module of the Registries
We will contact you and provide supporting documentation if ethics approval is required. Certain sites may also need to sign a Research Participation Agreement with the University of Sydney, which owns the Registries.
Complete a short training session
All Users must complete a mandatory training session before gaining access to SSR. The session covers the data entry protocol for the Registries.
Training can be completed online via our video training module, or through an instructor-led training session held via video conference and will take 25 to 30 minutes to complete.
Start entering your data
You will gain access to the Registries once you have completed the training session. Data entry is quick and easy and can be integrated into your practice. You can add patients as you see them or enter retrospective data into the system.
