Cancer Consortium Studies and the UW Injury Compensation Program

There has been long-standing confusion about whether UW oncology stuides reviewed by the Hutch's Cancer Consortium IRB are eligible for the UW Injury Compensation program.  This program provides health care for research-related medical problems, at no cost to the research subjects.  It also provides limited rembursement for out-of-pocket expenses incurred by subjects because of research-related medical problems.

A simple flow chart has been posted on our website that describes the decision making process.  Read our eNews online for more detailed information.


REMINDER & NEW TIMELINE - Revised Medical Records Form

If you will be conducting research that only involves identifiable biological specimens and/or data, a substantially reviwed form with new guidance has been created titled: Use of Identifiable Specimens/Data.  These replace the old "Medical Records Review" form and instructions.

Please read the eNews for more details.


New and Revised Documents

See our eNews for details on new and revised documents.
