Dear CIRB Participant,

Last year, the CIRB rolled out a new website and materials aimed at improving communication.  These actions were in response to input from both a survey and a set of focus groups of CIRB participants.  

Because our last survey occurred several years ago, we’d like to get a current view of CIRB communication methods and materials.  We will make additional improvements based on your feedback.

The CIRB determines the age ranges when a child’s assent is required. If a child in the age range determined by the CIRB cannot provide assent, an Assent Waiver must be obtained prior to the child’s enrollment in the study. An electronic process has been developed for staff at enrolled institutions to request an assent waiver from the CIRB for an individual child in IRBManager.

Dear CIRB Stakeholders,

As part of ongoing quality improvement efforts, the CIRB Operations Office has made changes to the document posting process in order to improve timeliness as well as centralize the location of CIRB-approved study documents.  These changes eliminate the 24-48 hour lag time between study activation and document posting, as well as limiting duplicative and inconsistent posts.
