Reportable New Information
To ensure the protection of research participants, the IRB requires investigators to report situations where participants experience unanticipated or anticipated problems during the course of the research promptly or at the time of continuing review.
Use the following resources to submit reportable new information:

High-level, step-by-step guide on how to submit a reportable event for a study.
Submit Monitoring Reports
Form for submitting written reports of study monitors to the Post Approval Review (PAR) program of the HRPP. Monitoring reports no longer require mandatory submission to the IRB. However, investigators are required to submit promptly reportable events to the IRB within five business days of discovery of the event. Occasionally, such events are identified during clinical monitoring and, as such, must be reported to the IRB accordingly.
We also recommend reviewing the following documents from the HRPP Toolkit Library:
