Completing Your Research Study
Do I need to notify the IRB when I complete or terminate my research protocol?
Yes. The completion or termination of a research protocol is a change in activity and must be reported to the IRB. Please fill out and complete the Research Completion Form at the close of your study. You will need to attach an abstract summary of your study along with the form.
A final report to the IRB signifies the closure of all files and provides information that may be used by the IRB in the evaluation and approval of related studies.
NOTE: Closure of a study means that no further data collection will be performed.
