Hi Cayuse Community,
Our institution is one of the first to implement Cayuse in Canada. We are running into some process related challenges and are hoping to hear how other institutions are managing. I have questions about SP4 and Human Ethics; I shared the SP questions in a different thread let week and have posted here some of our HE questions.For context, Queen's University is a research-intensive institutions (medical school, all levels of post-graduate training) in Canada, but we have a relatively smaller faculty cohort of about 850.
1. Does your institution have more than one IRB using Human Ethics? E.g. a health sciences review board and a separate general/social sciences review board? If so, how do you meet reporting requirements per board? We are learning that while we can create one smart form that immediate branches based on an answer to the question of which board a new ethics protocol is being submitted to that field is not reportable and therefore we are struggling to figure out how we can pull reports for each board easily.2. If you have researchers on your IRB, how do you prevent them from seeing comments made by other reviewers on their own submissions? We see this as a serious issue in confidentiality, but this should not be a Canadian specific problem. Wondering how other institutions have found a way around this.3. What is the process used by your institution for reviewing student-led ethics applications? Our current system allows us to send these applications directly and automatically to unit (departmental) level review boards as a first step, who then forward the file to the IRB (typically our General Research Ethics Board) if evaluated review is required. The Cayuse system doesn't support this so we are considering alternative approaches.
4. Do you create reports that distinguish between incident types that occurred within a given reporting cycle, e.g. adverse events vs. protocol deviations? If so, what is your process?
Happy to hear how your institution used HE. We likely have many more questions and will share those as they come up.BestKaren
