All Children's Hospital Institutional Review Board is committed to maintaining high standards of research integrity. To insure a common foundation in the knowledge of the ethical and regulatory issues of the protection of human research participants, a mandatory research education requirement has been instituted for all ACH investigators and research personnel. This includes, and is not limited to, IRB committee members, investigators, coordinators, pharmacists, fellows, students, and any other research team members who interact with study participants and/or access their protected health information.
The mandatory education requirement includes: An initial Foundation requirement; and An annual Continuing Research Education requirement
For affiliated USF investigators and research personnel, the mandatory education requirement required by the university meets the ACH IRB requirement. Copies of the certifications of completion should be sent to the Administrative Office of the ACH IRB (ACH Box 9496).
For ACH research personnel, completion of the NIH web-based course is a one-time only requirement. Proof of completion must be submitted to the Administrative Office of the ACH Institutional Review Board (ACH Box 9496).
There is an annual requirement of one educational course or event each year of involvement in human subject research. A copy of the certification of completion should be sent to the Administrative Office of the ACH Institutional Review Board (ACH Box 9496).
