Compliance Office Remote Monitoring

November 30, 2020

During the COVID 19 pandemic the Compliance office has replaced on-site monitoring with remote monitoring and will conduct routine remote site visits for all full board initial applications that have enrolled subjects and a sample of ongoing expedited projects.

Remote monitoring will be completed in 2 steps.

  • Step 1: a standard remote monitoring form is sent to the PI and study coordinator via email to complete.
  • Step 2: the HRPP Compliance Analyst will schedule a Zoom session with the PI and any study team members who wish to join. Prior to the meeting, the HRPP Compliance Analyst will provide any additional questions that we will ask at the remote monitoring visit.  

The Compliance office has also implemented Investigator self-audits for projects where there is no contact with subjects and researchers are not obtaining a signed consent form.

Post-approval monitoring serves to educate researchers and to ensure that research is conducted in accordance with federal, state and local regulations, university policies, and ethical standards. For more information, please visit sections 5-2-B Compliance Office and 8-10 Research Site Visits of the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Manual.
