Revised Training Requirements for Non-Hopkins Study Team Members
As we have in the past, for study team members (investigators, consent designees and others listed on a study) who are not affiliated with Hopkins, the JHM IRB will accept research compliance training certification from CITI, their local institution or another institution, such as NIH. As of June 1, 2012, if the compliance training certificate is more than five years old at the time of IRB submission, study team members not affiliated with Hopkins will be required to take the JHM IRB compliance training course. For more information about IRB training requirements, please visit the following link: Training Requirements for Human Subjects Research

PI Recertification Update

In March 2010, The Johns Hopkins Medicine Human Research Protection Program implemented a new compliance training recertification requirement for Principal Investigators who are engaged in human subjects research. Principal Investigators must earn a total of 100 points in order to meet their recertification requirement, and must complete their recertification requirement within five years of their initial human subjects research training.

Please Note: MyLearning will track your course completions. If you have taken CITI coursework, it will appear in MyLearning the day after completion. Once you have earned a total of 100 points, a "Congratulations" message will appear within your recertification tool. The message will also include a link to your "MyLearning History" where you will find a copy of your recertification certificate.

For more information, please visit the following link: New Training Recertification Requirements.

JHM IRB Consent Form Updates

A new version of the HIPAA Combined Informed Consent/Authorization Template (March 2012, Version 13) has been posted. All new and revised consent forms are required to be on this template as of June 1, 2012. Consent forms received after June 1, 2012 on an outdated template will be returned and the application will not be processed until the correct consent forms are submitted.

The JHM IRB has posted the Combined Parental Informed Consent/Authorization Template (May 2012, Version 1). This template should be used when ALL study participants will be under 18 years of age and parent/legally authorized representative consent is required.

JHM IRB approved translations of the "short form" consent document, as well as the English language version of the short form have been updated to include information about clinical trials (www.clinicaltrials.gov)

The Johns Hopkins/King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital (KKESH) Informed Consent Template is now also available on the IRB website. This form and all other documents mentioned above can be found on the IRB website (http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/institutional_review_board) under "Forms."
