IRB Member Review and Reference Documents

CHA has developed documents for its IRB Reviewers to help provide reference and facilitate documentation of review.

The reference documents are tools designed to assist Reviewers, but they may also provide insight for researchers as they draft and develop study projects and protocols. The documents contain embedded links and references, which may also serve as general education resources.

The information in the documents below – both the reference documents and the IRB member Reviewer forms – help make the IRB review process more transparent; enabling researchers to see and know the same information and criteria by which each study will be evaluated.
