PSI Guidelines for Deciding Whether an Activity Requires REB Review


Download Resource

This document provides guidance to help PSI staff determine whether research activities require review by the PSI’s Research Ethics Program (REP). Considerations include whether “human subjects” are involved and, if so, whether the study is “research” according to the definitions of the USG’s Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP). Examples of PSI studies that require review as well as those that may not require review are provided, as well as a brief summary regarding who at PSI should make these determinations.
