Forms: After Approval

Applications that were submitted or reviewed by IRB prior to August 19, 2019 will be considered “legacy protocols” and will only be converted for use within Cayuse on an as-needed basis (e.g., if study modifications are requested or protocol renewals are required). We anticipate having a process in place to amend legacy protocols via Cayuse by the end of October 2019. Please use the following forms to modify or report on legacy protocols.

  • Amendment to Approved Study
    • Modification of an existing IRB Protocol. **Note, if your study procedures are changing, an updated consent form must also be submitted for review.
  • Amendment Personnel Table
    • Addition or removal of personnel from an IRB Protocol. **Note, an updated consent form may also be necessary if study contact information will change.
  • Bulk Personnel Amendment Form
    • Addition or removal of personnel from IRB Protocols. This form is to assist Principal Investigators whose research teams experience high turnover each semester when students begin research or depart the University. **Note, an updated consent form may also be necessary for protocols where study contact information will change.
  • Continuing Review
    • Informs IRB of project status
  • When Should I Report Study Problems to the IRB?
    • Provides researchers with a decision matrix in the event that an unanticipated adverse event occurs during the course of the study.
  • Reporting Unanticipated Problem and/or Adverse Event
    • Used to report an unanticipated problem or adverse event to the IRB. If an unexpected event happens during the course of your research. Report it promptly in detail to the IRB.
  • Research Closure
    • Informs IRB of project closure

Post Approval Monitoring

Below are the forms utilized by a study monitor before, during, and after a monitoring visit. Other information may be collected as needed.

  • Preliminary Monitoring Form
    • If your study is chosen for a post approval monitoring visit, you will be asked to complete this form to allow the monitor to assess the initial status of the study.
  • IRB Protocol Post-approval Monitoring Form
    • During the in-person visit to your study’s location, the monitor will assess the items on this form and take notes.
  • Post-review Summary
    • The monitor will summarize any details of the visit and review with the Principal Investigator. This document will be sent by the monitor to the IRB for review.
