Recruitment efforts and materials (advertisements, flyers, telephone scripts, newspaper ads, radio and television announcements, bulletin board tear-offs, Internet postings and posters) are part of the informed consent process and the participant selection process. Consequently, the IRB must review and approve all recruitment procedures and materials before use.
Retention efforts and materials must also be reviewed and approved prior to use.
A copy of the approved material(s) will be stamped with the IRB approval stamp and returned to you.
Note: Approved materials will be reviewed at the time of continuing review and are subject to change. Please do not print more items than you expect to use within the year of approval, as revisions may be required with the continuing review.
