Have you ever wondered what sections in the HawkIRB application generate the most workflow questions? Do you want to know what to fix when initially submitting HawkIRB New Project forms to help your application go through the IRB review process more smoothly? This advanced IRB presentation will focus on the most common workflow issues from the past three years and provide guidance about how to avoid these issues in your HawkIRB forms. This presentation will also include:

  • A brief refresher of the ethical principles for the conduct of human subjects research
  • The regulatory criteria for IRB approval
  • Tools available in the HawkIRB Index that explain what you need to know to complete each section and why the IRB needs this information, and
  • A behind the scenes look at the IRB review process and types of IRB review.
