Part B: RISe Application Guidance Notes

The Application Guidance Notes (AGNS) provide question by question guidance for filling out the UBC Clinical research ethics application.

It is recommended that researchers have the AGNs close at hand while filling out the application for quick reference. Along with the AGNs, the right hand side of the application is also a useful resource, so it is recommended that researchers read the application thoroughly as they are filling it out.

The AGNs are connected with the main UBC Clinical Guidance notes (GNs). The main GNs are UBC's overarching clinical guidance notes and are a less administrative discussion of UBC's ethical framework. There are links between the two sets of guidance notes, where applicable, to avoid redundancies.

RISe Application Guidance Notes

The Application Guidance Notes following this Introduction correspond to the questions in the UBC online Application for Ethical Review. The online application form is divided into pages or views with required fields in each view which will prevent you from proceeding to the next page unless you have completed all of the required fields. Required fields are marked by a red asterisk. While only some fields are "required", it is recommended that all fields are completed in the application form, marking "N/A" for questions which do not apply to your study.
