5/1/2020- Summary of Changes Document Now Needed for Investigator Initiated Research
UofL IRB will require researchers to include a “protocol summary of changes document” on protocol amendments for investigator initiated studies. This document will outline the changes made in the revised protocol that is being submitted for review. This document will continue to be updated as protocol amendments occur, making it easy to summarize the changes occurring over the life of the study. This does not replace the requirement to submit a “tracked copy" of the revised protocol.
Protocol Summary of Changes Template can be found at https://louisville.edu/research/humansubjects/qip/qip
