The OHSN-REB initial ethics application as well as all post approval forms (Amendment Form, Reportable Event Form, Continuing Review Form and Study Closure Form) must be submitted electronically via the Clinical Research Registration Form (CRRF) in IRIS.
An initial ethics application (i.e.: a CRRF) can be created via your IRIS homepage.
A post approval form application (Amendment Form, Reportable Event Form, Continuing Review Form and Study Closure Form) can be created via the “Post Forms” tab of your study’s existing CRRF.
Step by step instructions on how to create an initial or post approval form can be found in the REB’s Education Catalogue on IRISGuide:
Departmental Impact Forms/ Notifications
It is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator/Research Staff to notify the relevant TOH/UOHI department(s) when the research project may have an operational impact (e.g.: time, staffing, space, scheduling, etc.) on the department that only occurs because the patient is a research participant (i.e.: impact due to research is beyond clinical/standard of care).
Appropriate registration to TOH/UOHI departments distinguishes between clinical and research activity for tracking and billing purposes.
All notifications/impacts are managed through the 'Notifications' tab of the Clinical Research Registration Form (CRRF), whether the Board of Record is OHSN-REB, CTO or OCREB.
All departmental impact forms and contacts can be found on IRISGuide:
