IRB (Institutional Review Board)
If you are not sure whether or not your project will require IRB review, contact the Office of Research Compliance & Development now. Generally QI or EBP projects will not require it, but it is best to be sure.
If your project will not need IRB review, great. Now you can move on to the next step.
If your project DOES need IRB review, then you will need to create an IRBNet account for your submission package. The ORC&D would have provided you with further information on this process.
STUDENTS need your approved school IRB application. The PI listed on it may be the student, Faculty Advisor or Academic Point of Contact.
When completing the Cone Health IRB application, the PI, Co-PI or AI MUST be a Cone Health RN. Your faculty advisor’s signature approving your study is also required, below the PI signature. (there is not a separate line; have them sign below your name and include their title).
