Abstract:
Nurses are using evidence based practice, quality improvement (QI) methods, and research studies to determine best practices for patient care. In the past, many nursing research and QI projects were not submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) due to lack of understanding of the IRB process. With a culture shift toward research, the IRB has taken an active, collaborative role with the Nursing Research Council (NRC). The following goals were identified: 1. Increase awareness of the IRB process, 2. Ensure that the IRB process is understandable and efficient for new principal investigators. The IRB staff implemented several innovations to meet these goals. The IRB manager and protocol specialist consult with the NRC and regularly attend meetings. A Nursing Research Handbook was developed which explains the purpose of an IRB, types of review, common IRB terminology, and what to expect before, during, and after an IRB submission. The handbook contains all the forms necessary for an IRB submission as well as an informed consent template, a proposal template, and a frequently asked questions page. An Exemption Determination Worksheet was developed to assist in deciding what studies were exempt from IRB review. An IRB Fast Facts educational flyer was developed for quick reference to IRB procedures. And finally, the research ethics training course was introduced to nurses. Many members of the NRC completed the course. Nurses have significantly increased the number of studies submitted to the IRB, in turn providing better protection for human subjects participating in research.
