With regard to achieving complete and consistent resolution of all IRB review contingencies, IRBMED has developed a cross-reference tool (eResearch Cross-Reference Table) designed to prompt study team members, IRB staff, and IRB board members to consider all locations throughout the IRB application materials (application form, research protocol, informed consent document, etc.) where a given change may also need to be reflected elsewhere in the application materials. Additionally, it is expected that this tool will be beneficial to study teams in the preparation of application materials.
The eResearch Cross-Reference Table will be posted on the IRBMED website, with links directing to it included in help text within eResearch applications.
