IRB Brown Bag Session: Responsibilities After IRB Approval

Thursday, 30 March, 2017

Please join the IRB at the next Brown Bag session, Responsibilities After IRB Approval," from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, in Room 110/111 at the Learning Resources Center.

Federal regulations require ongoing study oversight by an IRB. After initial IRB approval, any changes to the protocol or consent materials, serious or unanticipated events, protocol deviations, requests for continuing review, etc., must be submitted to the IRB for review.

It is important for researchers to be aware of IRB reporting requirements after receiving IRB approval. This session will cover post-approval reporting requirements for both local and central IRB submissions.

During this intermediate course, participants will learn: What types of events require reporting to/approval by the IRB; The appropriate forms/systems to use when reporting, and the required timing of each submission type; and common reporting errors and how to avoid them.

We are working on making CNE nursing credits available. 

Don’t forget to bring your lunch or a snack. 

The IRB’s Brown Bag series is designed to provide the SLU research community with in-depth understanding and discussion concerning the latest policies, procedures and requirements pertaining to human subjects research. Brown Bag sessions are for SLU research professionals and coordinators, and any student, staff or faculty member who is looking for continuing IRB education.
