Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Newsletter - Spring 2016

AAHRPP Re-Accreditation

As discussed in the Fall Newsletter, our Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is currently undergoing AAHRPP re-accreditation. Our Step I application was recently accepted indicating that our institutional policies and procedures meet accreditation standards. The remaining piece of our successful re-accreditation is a site visit from AAHRPP here at UW this fall. Many individuals throughout UW's research enterprise will be involved in this site visit, and the HRPP will assist in preparing all those involved.

Post Approval Monitoring (PAM) Program Services

Since its initiation, the Post Approval Monitoring (PAM) Program has offered to complete directed reviews for study teams looking to ensure their studies are being conducted in compliance with applicable policies and regulations. To further its goal of assisting researchers across campus, the PAM Program will be offering the new services described below. If you are interested in more information about these services, contact Ryan Moze (

  • General Presentations:

    • A representative from the PAM Program can give a presentation to your program or department on various topics related to conduct of human participants research. Presentations can vary in length from 10-30 minutes depending on the topic(s) you would like presented on. The presentation can include information on the following topics:
      • What to expect from a routine monitoring review
      • Tips for successful monitoring and avoiding common problems
      • Common findings from PAM reviews
      • General Q&A session

  • Post-IRB Approval Consultation:

    • Following IRB approval and prior to enrollment, study teams can request a consultation from the PAM program. At this meeting, the study team will discuss their plan for conducting the study with one of the post approval monitors. The monitor will provide the study team with study conduct feedback, recommendations, and documentation tools/templates that can make for more efficient conduct, improved documentation, and simpler compliance.

  • Drop-In Sessions:

    • Representatives from PAM Program will host drop-in sessions at various times and locations across campus. These sessions offer campus researchers an opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues related to the conduct of human participants research at UW. This spring's sessions will be held at the following locations:
