Short Form Consents and Updated CIRB SOPs
Dear CIRB Stakeholders,
We are happy to announce that CIRB-approved short form consents are now available in 11 languages on CTSU’s website under Resources.
Sites can use these approved short forms for any study approved by the CIRB if:
- There is no eligibility restriction in the protocol based on language that would prohibit enrollment of the participant;
- The Signatory Institution’s policies permit the use of short form consents;
- These policies have been reported to the CIRB on either the Annual Signatory Institution Worksheet or the Annual PI Worksheet; and
- A CIRB-approved short form exists in a language understandable to the potential participant.
A Short Forms Q & A is also available.
If you have any questions regarding the use of short forms or changes to the SOPs, contact the CIRB Helpdesk: email@example.com or 1-888-657-3711.
