Quality Management Consultation
To assist Investigators and study staff in implementing quality management processes to ensure compliance with the regulations, policies, and guidelines applicable to their specific study and to further protect subjects who participate in research. The OHSP-QI staff will provide resources that encourage, guide, integrate, and enhance continuous quality improvement for a research study, site, or research program.
At the request of the Principal Investigator or Study Team members, the OHSP-QI staff is available to conduct a Quality Management consultation. This service may occur at any time in the study life cycle; but would typically occur during protocol design or following IRB approval.
The OHSP-QI staff will evaluate the study protocol, collaborate with the Investigator/site staff to brainstorm efficient and effective means to mitigate errors and ensure understanding of the applicable regulations, policies, and guidelines specific to the research study. Quality Management Plan Consultations are free and fully customizable to study team needs.
OHSP-QI provides educational materials/references, support, study tools, and a post-consultation written assessment.
