Email CPHS.Tasks@dartmouth.edu with the funding source. Note: Funding sources are sorted by their full name. To search on a funding source by acronym, insert a % before the acronym (e.g. %NIH)
Email CPHS.Tasks@dartmouth.edu with the drug name.
The primary faculty advisor should be listed as the primary investigator on the Basic Information Page of the SmartForm. Students should be listed as Student Investigator on the Study Team Member page of the SmartForm.
Ancillary reviews in RAPPORT allow departments, individuals, or organizations to complete a review of a study within RAPPORT. They also can be used to track departmental, scientific, or organizational reviews that occur outside of RAPPORT. Ancillary reviews can be set up by using the Manage Ancillary Review button in the Study Workspace or set up by default in the User Profile.
If you are conducting an ancillary review outside of RAPPORT, use the Department/Scientific Review Form. To complete the review in RAPPORT, select Manage Ancillary Reviews from the Study Workspace, then click Add. Select your name next to person, select the applicable review type on question 2 and Yes for question 3, then click OK. Then click Update next to the review, answer question 4, and upload the form on question 6. Click OK, and then OK again to return to the Study Workspace. Note: You will receive an email notifying you of the ancillary review once the study has been submitted to CPHS, even if you have already uploaded the form.
The CPHS is the reviewing Committee for researchers affiliated with Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Review is required by the CPHS prior to initiation of the project whether or not a funding source is available. This applies to ALL research involving people including but not limited to clinical, social science, and behavioral. If in doubt, contact the CPHS office. For student project review information please go to the student researcher page of our website.
CPHS has three full committees that meet monthly. Meetings are held on the first, third, and fourth Thursdays of the month.
Any research study involving human subjects must be submitted to the CPHS, regardless of funding source, or lack there of.
Research is defined as a systematic investigation designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.
Please see this page for current fee information.
The consent process must provide potential participants with sufficient information to make informed choices about either beginning or continuing participation in research. The process involves a dynamic and continuing exchange of information between the research team and the participant throughout the research experience. The consent form is a tool to assist the researcher.
In 2013, the CPHS office is implemented a new renewal process for non-federally funded, minimal risk (expedited) studies. The plan requires a two year renewal period rather than a one year renewal period by default. This plan applies to existing and new expedited studies. If your study qualifies, the CPHS office will let you know and ask you to confirm a few facts about your study.
In order to qualify the research:
• Must be determined to pose no more than minimal risk to participants, and
• Must not be supported by any Federal funding or include vulnerable populations as participants.
Beginning in July, 2013 the CPHS instituted a standing anniversary date for continuing review for the life of a study. For example: if a study's CPHS approval is set to expire on April 1st, the anniversary date for continuing review of the study will become April 1st. CPHS has adopted this practice based on guidance from the Office of Human Research Protections, "Guidance on Continuing Review" dated January 15, 2007.
The CPHS hopes this practice will assist researchers plan for the preparation of continuing review materials, and to remember the date- like a birthday or your wedding anniversary.... You wouldn't forget your anniversary, would you? Rest assured, the CPHS plans to continue sending reminders by email when materials are due, as a courtesy and to help keep you on schedule.
