Topics: During the past several years, the human research enterprise has witnessed an increase in the use of a single IRB for review of multi-site studies. “Single IRB review” refers to a multitude of models, including, institution-based, independent, central, collaborative, or lead-IRB review. With the issuance by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of a draft policy to promote the use of a single IRB for multi-site studies funded by the NIH, as well as the ANPRM emphasis on promoting efficiency through the use of single IRB review, it is an opportune time to examine guidance available for relying on a single IRB in multi-site studies. This webinar will discuss the SACRHRP recommendations on the topic, including consideration of local context, applicable law and local standards, participant safety and post-approval monitoring, and other essential issues for HRPP consideration. Participants will learn what to consider in Authorization Agreements, how to develop processes to oversee ongoing research and what information to obtain from the investigative site when your IRB is the IRB of record. In addition, examples of how to best utilize staff, as well as ways to reduce time-consuming activities that do not contribute to research review or oversight, will be discussed.
Investigators submitting full board proposals are no longer required to submit 20 paper copies of their submission packets. Researchers are requested to submit one paper or electronic copy (pdf only) of their entire proposal to the Office of Research Support by the submission deadline.
