Changes Coming to HSD!

In order to better serve the UW research community, and to address the findings of two recent federal audits of the UW IRBs, HSD will be implementing numerous changes to our policies, procedures and forms over the next six months. All changes are being made to improve HSD's compliance with federal and state regulations and to improve the quality and consistency of IRB review at UW. Many of these changes will also reduce or streamline the IRB-related work required from researchers. Earlier this fall, HSD delivered several presentations to various locations on campus.

A recording of one of the presentations is now available on our website on our new HSD Training Videos page.

Changes discussed include:

  • What does, and does not, need IRB review
  • IRB issues for research involving other institutions
  • Translation and interpretation
  • Identifying FDA-regulated studies
  • More!
