This session addresses how to submit research for IRB review when the data already exists (i.e. will be obtained via retrospective data collection). In particular, the session will cover the use of medical records for a chart review which may serve as the primary method of data collection, or as a means to identify eligible participants for additional data collection. This session will present details on the information the IRB is required to review for research involving retrospective data. The training will involve a discussion of both the Protocol Summary Form and HIPAA regulations when applicable.
