07-09-2015 - Starting immediately, please use the term “prepaid card” rather than “gift card” when discussing participant compensation in the informed consent document. This request is from the accounting department to comply with regulations.
For active studies, please change this wording in your consent at continuation review. The IRB analyst will also watch for this and will send your study back to request this change. The Informed Consent instructions template language will be updated to reflect this change.
04-14-2015 - Effective Immediately: For studies that require a Research Authorization, the IRB will only renew a combined Informed Consent/Research Authorization form. If you have a study utilizing separate consent and research authorization documents, please submit a combined ICF/RA version at your next continuation review following the combined template and instructions on the HSPPO website. This change is to reduce the risk of data being sequestered for not having a valid Research Authorization in place. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 502-852-5188
04-13-2015 - updated the partial and complete waivers: removed reference to 6.b (since #6 was deleted previously) and added “version date” to the footer.
