(Edits and changes may be ongoing)
IMPORTANT: If you are using this form for the first time please read the following instructions carefully.
This form allows applicants to partially complete sections, close, and return later using the unique hyperlink sent to your email when you completed your registration. All previously entered data except attachments will be saved. Saved form data is lost after 30 days if not submitted, and please do not delete your cookies or clear your cache before submitting. This form cannot be saved to a computer as a partially completed PDF.
The unique hyperlink to this application form can also be shared with a student or colleague if you wish to complete the form together.
Error messages will appear in red text at the bottom of the page if you leave a required field empty. You cannot click submit until all required fields are filled in but you can still navigate throughout the form and save your entries.
Unfortunately, attachments cannot be saved in partially completed forms. Attachments must be uploaded on the last page of this form, depending on the type of study being conducted (i.e. different studies require different attachments and choices made throughout the form will dictate what attachments are requested at the end). Applicants must wait to upload their attachments until they are ready to submit.
To help prepare, attachments may include:
Prior ethics approval letter(s) from other institutions
TCPS 2 CORE certificate of completion
Data collection tools
Evidence of participatory approach
Letter to Institution
Letters and agreements
Written consent form(s)
Oral consent script
Debriefing letter or script
Confidentiality waiver form
(Samples and templates of these documents will be posted on the STU REB website Summer 2017)
Use the tabs at the top of each page to navigate through the various sections of the form.
A PDF copy of the completed form will be automatically sent to the email address of the Principle Investigator after it has been submitted.
Hardcopy submissions of ethics applications using the old STU ethics application form will no longer be accepted.
If you experience any difficulties or have feedback for the REB Coordinator please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 452-0621.
