MOCK IRB SUBMISSION PROCESS
This purpose of this assignment is to increase familiarity with the IRB submission process.
In this assignment, you will create a mock GCU Quality Improvement (QI) IRB submission. You will be required to submit your actual DPI-Committee-Approved DPI Project Proposal to iRIS in the DNP-960 course, and so to prepare, you will begin reviewing the submission process and all requisite IRB documents in this assignment. However, you will not be submitting an IRB proposal for your DPI Project at this point in time. This assignment is a practice opportunity to ensure you are aware of the QI-IRB submission process at your clinical/practicum site and that you are familiar with the types of documents required.
Use the following information to assist you in executing the correct procedures for timely, successful completion of the assignment:
- Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments.
- You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.
Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:
- Work with your preceptor/mentor at your clinical/practicum site to understand the DPI Project approval process for IRB and quality improvement projects. This includes timelines, committees involved (IRB, Nursing Research, Quality Improvement), and the authorizing signatures required. Ensure you address timeframes and submission documents required in addition to the approval process for a quality improvement DPI Project to be conducted at your clinical/practicum site.
- Review the resources within the IRB Documents folder, located in the DC Network. Navigate to the IRB Documents folder by selecting DNP Community, DNP Program Documents, DNP-960, and then the IRB Documents folder.
- Read the “IRB Documents Checklist for DNP Learners,” located in the DNP-960 folder.
- Review the IRB Submission Training Videos for iRIS.
- With your instructor, determine which documents you will need to submit for your IRB application based on the “IRB Documents Checklist for DNP Learners,” located in the DNP-960 folder.
- Use the following document templates as needed: informed consent, site authorization letter, recruitment script, confidentiality statement, conflict of interest form, and HIPAA authorization form, located in the DNP-960 Folder/IRB Documents folder.
