RITHIM is a provincial initiative involving multiple stakeholders to improve time-to-conduct for health research in Manitoba.

RITHIM is unique across Canada in that it will harmonize ethics, privacy and institutional impact review processes, creating a more efficient process for health research reviews in Manitoba.

January 1st, 2022 is a key milestone and important step for the RITHIM program, as the PHIA amendments that enable the new harmonized process will be proclaimed.

To learn more about these changes please watch our most recent webinar (November 2, 2021):

RITHIM staff regularly send out updates to keep the health research community and stakeholders informed on the progress of the mission to harmonize ethics and privacy approvals in Manitoba.
