Have You Received Initial or Continuing IRB/CORIHS Approval Recently?

Winter 2017

If yes, you may have noticed a new section on your approval letter. It states:

“When you are ready to schedule and undergo the consent process with your first post-approval subject, please contact Mary O'Neill at Mary.Oneill@stonybrook.edu to coordinate having her present to witness your consent process. This process is part of our ongoing effort to ensure maintained quality in our human research protection program.”

So, if you are still in the accrual phase of your research, please let Mary know (if at all possible), when you will be consenting your next research subject, so she can observe your consent process. Together, we need to make sure that the people who volunteer in our research activities get all the information they need to make a decision regarding participation, in an understandable, un-rushed manner.
