Guidelines for Full Board and Expedited Review

Full Board Review - It is expected that either the principal investigator or a co-investigator will present a new protocol at a regularly scheduled meeting of the IRB. Amendments requiring full board review can be presented by the PI, Co-I or the study coordinator. Please review the Guidelines for Oral Presentation of a Protocol to the IRB prior to your presentation to the board. 

The submission deadline for materials being reviewed by the full board are due in the IRB Office the 3rd Friday the month before the scheduled board meeting. Submissions received after this deadline will be put on the agenda for the following month's meeting. The UnityPoint Health-Des Moines IRB meets the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7am on the Iowa Methodist Hospital campus.

Expedited Review - Protocols may be submitted at any time. The investigator is not required to present the protocol to the full board. Federal regulations (45CFR46.110) define the types of research eligible for review by expedited procedures. Only the IRB Chair or his designee is authorized to make the determination whether a protocol qualifies for expedited review.  The average turnaround time for expedited reviews is 10-14 business days once all required materials have been received and confirmed as complete. Submissions are processed on a first come-first served basis.

Please Note: All submissions must accompany the following items:

  • IRB Application
  • Informed Consent or a Request for a Waiver of Consent
  • Protocol (the who, what, when, why, where & how of the study)
  • All handouts that will be given to the study subjects, including any scripts for verbal surveys
  • Completed Conflict of Interest forms for all study team members
  • Certificate of completion of human subject training (CITI training) for all study team members

All forms can be found on our website under the Forms tab. The link to the CITI Human Subjects Training course can be found under Education.
