Working Group Products from sIRB Alliance at NYU School of Medicine
Informed by the results of our survey, the sIRB Alliance at NYU School of Medicine invited individuals from CTSA and non-CTSA institutions to address relevant local context issues in a series of working group teleconferences. The working groups characterized a range of acceptable practices that may be considered for adoption as best practices in several areas.
The topics we covered include standardization of practices for the following:
- informed consent form templates
- reliance agreements
- IRB documents and definitions
- reportable events and non-compliance reporting
- ancillary review committees
See details of each of the working group’s products.
Our final reports on best practices will be available in September 2018.
The sIRB Alliance will continue to work on standardization of IRB review practices for sIRBs.
