Ongoing Compliance Documentation

Conducting research involving human subjects requires review and approval by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Federal, state, and institutional policies govern this process. However, it's not necessary for investigators to become experts in these regulations. OCTRI can guide investigators and study staff through this process.  OCTRI can assist with the initial IRB submission at both OHSU, Kaiser Permanente, and the Portland Veterans Administration Medical Center.

OCTRI study coordinators are experienced in submitting ongoing documentation to the IRB.  This documentation includes: protocol modifications, adverse events (AEs) , and the Continuing Review Questionnaire (CRQ).
