Explanation of Consent Form standards by Committee of Human Research, UCSF

As part of the Committee on Human Research (CHR) process improvement project analysis, we discovered that poorly-prepared submissions negatively impacted the review and approval times of well-prepared submissions by diverting significant time and resources to a small fraction of poorly prepared submissions. Consequently, the CHR office is implementing consistent minimum submission standards. Instituting this new procedure will enable CHR staff to focus on well-prepared applications, resulting in faster reviews and approvals overall.
