August 11, 2017: A new Reportable Event Guidance has been adopted by the Clinical Trials Committee. Please follow this new guidance when submitting SAEs, Safety Update Reports, Protocol Deviations, Audits, Privacy Breaches, Participant Complaints, and DSMB/Interim Analysis Reports. Note that files within IRISS are to use the Reportable Events feature for these submissions.
June 28, 2017: A new Reportable Event feature is available in IRISS. This feature is available for studies reviewed by the HREBA-Cancer Committee and HREBA-Clinical Trials Committee. If your study was reviewed by the Community Health Committee, please continue submitting Reportable Events (e.g. SAEs, protocol deviations, DSMB reports, etc.) as per the existing process.
The Health Research Ethics Board of Alberta (HREBA) charges $4000 for the initial full board review, or $1000 for the initial delegated review, of an industry sponsored study. This applies to studies received by any of three HREBA Committees after July 1, 2017. Click title above for more information.
