A reminder to check notes and draft contingencies in CLARA

When reviewing studies, please remember to take a look at the notes and draft contingencies already entered into CLARA by the office staff. We use these CLARA functions to indicate areas that we think need may need additional input by the IRB, and to note draft contingencies the IRB may want to consider. Please note that these are only suggestions. You can discuss them further at the meeting, or document (using the “comment” function) that you think the submission already adequately addresses these areas, or move them over to your list if you’d like to make them contingencies. Please call the IRB office for help if you have trouble finding or using these comments in your reviews.
