of Research (RCR); KPNW: Training in Bioethics and Human Subjects


* Training in HIPAA

* Disclosures of Conflicts of Interest in Research

For studies submitted to the OHSU IRB that include Kaiser personnel:

Search for Kaiser personnel below. Enter the first few letters of the

first or last name and click on the "Go" button. Create a screen shot

showing the name and date recertified (Alt-PrtScr, then paste into Word

For studies submitted to the KPNW IRB that include OHSU personnel, KPNW

IRB staff will verify training of OHSU personnel in the ORIO Compliance


All training and disclosures for all personnel must be current or the

kaiser ohsu irb integration initiative case studies
Kaiser-OHSU IRB Integration Initiative – Case studies

Dr. PI from Institution A proposes a dietary evaluation of patients post MI and CABG to assess dietary intake of a new phyto-antioxidant and a dietary intervention to increase the level of the phyto-antioxidant. Would like to recruit post CABG patients from Institution A and Institution B by obtaining a list of subjects who have undergone CABG in the last 1 year to send them a letter inviting them to participate. Subjects will come to Institution A for dietary survey, multiple visits for baseline and follow-up labs and receive the dietary supplement, nutritional counseling.

Kaiser: If minimal risk, A would not cede

If minimal risk, B would cede

OHSU: If A, would not cede

If B, would cede but require letter

come from OHSU provider
