Collaborator Endorsement Letter
Collaboration Endorsement Letter Template: required when an investigator relies on UnityPoint Health – Meriter staff to aid their research in some way. The letter spells out in what ways the collaborating person/department will help the researcher. The letter should be signed by a department or work area manager, director or other authority.
Examples of research collaboration carried out by non-research staff:
- Handing out recruitment materials.
- Passing information such as consent to contact forms from prospective subjects to the investigator.
- Keeping recruitment brochures and flyers available in waiting or examining areas.
- De-identifying and/or coding a bio-specimen and temporarily storing it until research staff can pick it up.
Consent Template: Customize by adding or deleting text as it applies to your research. Please do not delete text that is mandatory.
