ORGANIZATION CHART



Hospital Kuala Lumpur as a Prime Site

Hospital Kuala Lumpur is one of the hospitals in Malaysia with the highest number of ongoing ISRs and has been selected to be included in the initial wave of Prime Sites – a collaboration between the Government of Malaysia (represented by the Ministry of Health), Clinical Research Malaysia (CRM), and IQVIA (previously Quintiles).

Prime site is defined as a site targeted for intensified infrastructure and human resources development for improved participation of investigators in conducting clinical trials. The vision is to establish Prime Sites locally for clinical research, and conducting benchmark trials with global impact.

The Prime Sites will develop long term strategic relationship with Quintiles to increase the number of industry sponsored research, improve start up time and to meet or exceed patient recruitment targets.

Our performance as a premier site was further recognised when Parexel included HKL as one of the 4 sites in Malaysia as a Site Alliance Member. Together we continue to conduct high quality ISRs for the benefits of our patients.

Hospital Kuala Lumpur as a Site Alliance

With its capability to federate / work within hospitals and with investigators involved in clinical trials activities with proven track records in scientific and medical expertise, in patients enrollment and their willingness for development, Hospital Kuala Lumpur became in December 2016 one of the early PAREXEL Alliance partner in Malaysia.

The Site Alliances Program develops and maintains strategic long-term alliances with select health care providers / research institutions (Alliance Members) and Site Management Organizations (SMOs) across the globe to deliver clinical trial efficiencies both for PAREXEL and our biopharmaceutical customers.

HOSPITAL RESEARCH REVIEW COMMITTEE (HRRC)

Hospital Kuala Lumpur’s HRRC was established in May 2014. It began as one of the implementation of a new framework for research approval in MOH through a pilot study that involved 3 other public hospitals. As of today, nearly all of the MOH hospitals with a HCRC have their own HRRC that reviews minimal risk research submitted through NMRR (http://www.nmrr.gov.my).

HKL HRRC members were recruited from various departments within HKL and currently consist of Consultants, Specialists, Surgeons, and Allied Health Officers. It started off with only 15 members, and has since expanded to 43 members. The meeting is held every week and reviews an average of 4-5 proposals each week. The proposals are assigned by NCRC to the panel via NMRR and HKL HRRC will recommend scientifically sound research to Malaysia Research & Ethics Committee (MREC) for review to obtain ethical approval.

 

The current panel of reviewers (and their respective departments):

Research Training Takwim for 2019:


RESEARCH REGISTRATION WITH CRC HKL

All research involving Hospital Kuala Lumpur staff or using the facilities within the hospital are required to be registered with CRC HKL – both IIR and ISR studies. Research involving HUMAN SUBJECTS (inclusive of medical records) conducted within the Ministry of Health Malaysia must obtain approval from the Medical Ethics Research Committee (MREC) prior to data collection - refer to Surat Pekeliling Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan Malaysia Bil.10/2015: Garispanduan Institut Kesihatan Negara Mengenai Penyelidikan di Institusi dan Fasiliti Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (Pindaan 01/2015).

As part of our KPI, we periodically report to National Clinical Research Centre (NCRC) on the research activity within Hospital Kuala Lumpur. This report is on a national level and represents the performance of each hospital with a HCRC present. We also present the data on a hospital level during the annual QA/QI meeting. Hence, data on research registration with CRC HKL will be tabulated to represent each clinical department’s performance in research.

 

INVESTIGATOR INITIATED RESEARCH (IIR) IN HOSPITAL KUALA LUMPUR

The NIH Guidelines for Conducting Research in MOH Institutions and Facilities (Revision 1/2015) states that all research done within MOH should obtain permission to conduct research at the respective facilities/institutions. To carry out this policy, CRC HKL acts as a gatekeeper of Hospital Kuala Lumpur, ensuring that all research conducted in the hospital have received approvals from MREC, Head(s) of Department, and Hospital Director before data collection for a study can start.

We have streamlined the process for both HKL (permanent) staff, and non-HKL staff. As those under attachment or undergoing training programs (including medical officers under masters training), are not permanently employed in HKL they would be categorised as non-staff.

 

The flowchart summarises the process of conducting IIR in Hospital Kuala Lumpur:

Investigators can register their study with us either in person at our office, or they can send an application to register their research via email. If you wish to go through the process online, kindly fill in the form below and submit to us the completed form at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The registration confirmation and the relevant forms to obtain HOD and Hospital Director approval will be emailed back to you in reply. If you receive no reply from us within 2 working days, kindly resend the email or call us at 603-26155555 ext.: 1782/1783.

INDUSTRY SPONSORED RESEARCH (ISR)

The NIH Guidelines for Conducting Research in MOH Institutions and Facilities (Revision 1/2015) states that all research done within MOH should obtain permission to conduct research at the respective facilities/institutions. To carry out this policy, CRC HKL acts as a gatekeeper of Hospital Kuala Lumpur, ensuring that all research conducted in the hospital have received approvals from MREC, Head(s) of Department, and Hospital Director before data collection for a study can start.

By collecting and updating the number of ISRs conducted within HKL, we would be able to present the data to the stakeholders and promote the potential of HKL as a centre for conducting ISRs. The reports we send out regarding ISR are only in terms of raw numbers and do not disclose confidential information regarding the studies.

Investigators can register their study with us either in person at our office, or they can send an application to register their research to us via email. If you wish to go through the process online, kindly fill in the form below and submit to us the completed form at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The registration confirmation and form will be emailed back to you in reply.

PUBLICATIONS

 

Ministry of Health, Malaysia (MOH) has laid out the guidelines which describes the MOH policies governing the conduct of research in MOH institutions and facilities. The policy statements in the guideline are derived from a review of all existing circulars and web documents issued by the MOH. MOH specified:-

 

 

• NMRR Registration of all research that involves MOH personnel OR that is to be conducted in MOH facility OR to be funded by the MOH research grant (Refer to circular (1)KKM/NIHSEC/03/0301-01 dated 5 Sept 2007)

• Review & approval of the research by a designated entity to which authority has been delegated for the purpose

• Research involving human subjects requires prior review and approval by the Medical Research and Ethics Committee (MREC)

• Approval of all research publications, whether in the form of research report, journal article or conference proceeding, by the NIH initially and thereafter by the Director General of Health Malaysia (Refer to circular (18)KKM/NIHSEC/100-1/1/1 dated 4 Jan 2013)

• Approval of all research presentations (oral and poster) must be obtained from the Director General of Health Malaysia (Refer to circular (18)KKM/NIHSEC/100-1/1/1 dated 4 Jan 2013)

 

Therefore, we encourage all HKL researchers to follow the policies made by MOH i.e. to register their publications/presentations to NIH. Furthermore, NIH will be able to capture the number of publications/presentations made by the MOH staffs and stored in their database.

Recently, on 9th April 2018, NIH has come out with the circular on ‘Menambahbaik Kriteria Dalam Prosedur Memperolehi Kelulusan Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan Untuk Penerbitan dan Pembentangan’(KKM/NIHSEC/600-1/1/1 (15)). Basically, NIH recommends adding few criteria into our researchers’ manuscript including of using the updated their P1 form and P2 form for DG’s approval for publication and presentation respectively.

Attached are the lists of publications made by HKL that CRC HKL managed to capture for our record.
