Webinar: (2016-05) Tools, Templates, and Checklists for Streamlining IRB Protocol Review

One of the primary responsibilities of the IRB administrator is to facilitate and streamline protocol review, in accordance with federal requirements for protecting human subjects. With the right tools, templates, and checklists, administrators can do so efficiently and in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. (Presented on May 5, 2016)

Using examples from typically challenging areas of protocol review, the presenters will demonstrate how to identify, develop, and successfully implement targeted tools, templates, and checklists. Areas that were covered included:
  • Screening of protocols upon receipt to determine submission completeness and the level of review required
  • Facilitating IRB member reviews
  • Using meeting minutes to document IRB determinations. [Consideration will be given to the new jointly released draft guidance from FDA and DHHS on IRB meeting minutes]
  • Developing IRB correspondence to communicate IRB inquiries or determinations

What will I learn?

After attending this webinar, attendees were able to:
  • Take advantage of tools, templates, and checklists to improve the protocol review process, and adapt pre-existing tools to fit their institution’s needs
  • Understand the benefits and shortcomings of using checklists and templates in the IRB review process
