For new study IRB applications that are approved with contingencies, study activities may not begin until all outstanding contingencies have been met and verified with the IRBMED. Once verified, IRBMED will issue the IRB approval letter. At that time, informed consent documents and recruitment materials will be finalized (when possible).
For new study IRB applications that are approved with no contingencies, consent documents and recruitment materials will be finalized (when possible) after issuing the IRB approval letter.
Finalized documents are available under the “Documents” tab of the main work-space of the IRB application.
Note: Currently, IRBMED electronic system does not support the finalizing of the certain type of documents (such as, PowerPoint presentations, JPG files, videos, etc.). This mostly occurs with the recruitment documents. For these types of documents, the study teams are asked to indicate the IRB application (HUM) number within the body of the document.
