The goal of this presentation is to inform research staff of the different factors that influence the IRB review of multi-site projects and trigger the need for reliance agreements. We will discuss what “reliance” means and the role of the Reliance Team in assisting study teams. This course will provide information regarding the single IRB (sIRB) application and its usefulness for multi-site projects. We will also discuss the importance of communication and responsibilities when participating in multi-site research. Finally, the course will provide the perspective of a study team utilizing UW-Madison as the reviewing IRB with a focus on how the study start-up process goes for a multi-site study and how to build relationships with study sites.
For more information on sIRB, see past presentations on “Ceding IRB Review and Introduction of the Ancillary Review Matrix” and “Revised Guidelines for Single IRB Review” here https://irb.wisc.edu/education-training/educational-outreach/.
