The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) new policy mandating the use of a single Institutional Review Board (sIRB) for all multi-site studies goes into effect in September 2017. Are you ready?
Many hospitals and academic medical centers (AMCs) are scrambling to plan for the complex and burdensome process surrounding multi-site, single IRB review. In particular, the coordination of site submissions and vital communications, and reliable budgeting for IRB review of multi-year, investigator-initiated research projects are challenges that these institutions will be facing – many for the first time. How then, can institutions prepare for this new mandate, all while allowing their research teams to focus on doing their research?
With a newly formed partnership designed to help institutions improve the effectiveness of their clinical research programs, WIRB and Huron have compiled a list of five important milestones that institutions will need to address when planning to comply with this new policy.
Access this webinar to learn what best-practices institutions can adopt to make it easy to plan, submit, and conduct their NIH-funded studies as efficiently, compliantly, and safely as possible.
