Month Flat Week Day

OHRE: Transmission of Sensitive Information Standard Information Session

Mon. 26 Oct, 2020 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Office for Human Research Ethics (OHRE) has been working with UNC Information Technology Services (ITS), ITS Policy Office, Privacy Office, Office of Clinical Trials (OCT), and IT-School of Medicine (SOM), regarding the upcoming revision to the “Transmission of Sensitive Information” standard and how this will affect human subject research. Although the standard is broader than communication with research subjects, it is inclusive of them as well. This revision will allow for an exception to the current process to permit texting or email with an individual through an exception process that involves obtaining the individual’s consent for certain types of messages.

The standard is set to be released on October 26. In preparation, updates are being made to IRBIS, consent templates, SOP’s and a FAQ is being completed. OHRE is also hosting an information session where presenters will review the standard FAQ and answer questions those in attendance may have.
