3.1.2017 – New Continuing Review Form Feedback Survey

On March 1, 2016 the IRB released the pilot version of the new submission form for Continuing Review. The Continuing Review submission form became required as of June 1, 2016. In July 2016 the HSERA continuing review application was revised to remove redundant questions in support the use of the new form.

As this form has now been available for a year, the IRB would like to solicit feedback from Principal Investigators, Research Coordinators (and other research support staff), the IRB Staff, and IRB Members. This short survey will take less than 3 minutes to complete. It will help us get a better understanding of the impact of this important change as we work toward updating the other sections of HSERA. A link will be sent in an email blast to the research community and will be available on the IRB website from March 1 – June 1, 2017. Once the survey is closed we will analyze the responses and post an update for the research community.

Please click here to take the survey. This survey is optional and anonymous. If you decide while taking the survey that you no longer want to participate – do not click “done” on the final page. Just close the browser window and your responses will not be logged.

Many thanks for your participation and feedback
