  5. Trends in Research Compliance • Increasing Challenges for Program Oversight (CY2006  Present) • Facility Director Leadership • Facility-Level Program Oversight • Auditing and Monitoring to Enhance Compliance • Aging Infrastructure • Relationships with Academic Affiliates

  6. Action Plans: Meeting Current Challenges • Facility Director Leadership  Leadership & Accountability Training (ORD) – Mandatory Attendance (January 2009)  Annual Certification of Research Oversight (ORO) – Began July 1, 2007 (ORO)

  7. Action Plans: Meeting Current Challenges • Facility-Level Program Oversight  Research Administrative Review (ORD) – Define Roles & Accountability for ACOS/R, AO/R, R&D Committee  Leadership & Accountability Training (ORD) – Mandatory Attendance (January 2009)  Facility Investigator Training Program Required

  8. Action Plans: Meeting Current Challenges • Auditing & Monitoring • Facility Research Compliance Officer Required – Effective December 31. 2008 (detailed or permanent) – Must Report to Facility Director (Mandatory) – Direct Reporting of Non-Compliance to ORO • Annual 100% Audit of Informed Consent • Tri-Annual Regulatory Audit of all Protocols • Audit Results Reported to ORO • Add Audit Monitoring to ORO On-Site Reviews • Research Compliance Officer Training (ORO)

  9. Action Plans: Meeting Current Challenges • Aging Infrastructure • Infrastructure Review (ORD) • Research Allocation Review (ORD, Finance, 10N) • ORD Research Administration IT Solution Work Group

  10. Action Plans: Meeting Current Challenges • Relationships with Academic Affiliates • AAMC – VA Working Group • VHA – OGC – OI&T Working Group – Use of Oversight Committees – Research Service Responsibilities – Data Ownership – Data Storage and Use

  13. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events • Replaces All Previous ORO Reporting Requirements • Human Research • Animal Research • Research Safety • Research Laboratory Security • Research Information Protection • Includes Reporting: • Within the Facility • To ORO • New Definitions and Reporting for Human Research • Unanticipated Problems / Serious Adverse Events • Serious of Continuing Noncompliance

  14. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events New Definitions Administrative Hold. • A voluntary interruption of research enrollments and/or ongoing research activities. • Does not apply to interruptions of research related to concerns regarding: • The safety, rights, or welfare of human research subjects, research investigators, research staff, or others; or • The safety or welfare of laboratory animals.

  15. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events New Definitions Serious Noncompliance. • Failure to adhere to the laws, regulations, or policies governing VA research that: • Results in substantive harm or damage (or risk of substantive harm or damage) to the safety, rights, or welfare of human subjects, research staff or others; or • Results in substantive harm or damage (or risk of substantive harm or damage) to the safety or welfare of laboratory animals; or • Substantively compromises the integrity or effectiveness of research protections, either systemically or relative to a particular protocol or project.

  16. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events New Definitions Serious AE (SAE) / Serious Problem. • An AE or problem that involves or results in: • Death, a life-threatening experience, inpatient hospitalization, prolongation of hospitalization, persistent or significant disability or incapacity, congenital anomaly, or birth defect; or • Substantive harm or damage (or risk of substantive harm or damage) to the safety, rights, or welfare of research subjects, research staff; or • Substantive harm or damage (or risk of substantive harm or damage) to the safety or welfare of laboratory animals; or • The need for medical, surgical, behavioral, social, or other intervention to prevent any of the above.

  17. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events New Definitions Continuing Noncompliance. • Persistent or repeated failure to satisfy VA or other federal research requirements, • Either in the past or extending into the present. Unanticipated Problem in Research. • Any problem in research that is not expected • In terms of nature, severity, or frequency of occurrence • As documented in the protocol or other materials approved by the R&DC, IRB, IACUC, etc. • For human research, may include the informed consent document, clinical investigators’ brochure, product labeling, etc.

  18. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events General Requirements • Facility Director must report to ORO: • Within 5 business days of being informed of a reportable event • Report must be in writing and signed • Report required whether or not event has been resolved • Followup reports as required by ORO

  19. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events Human Research Unanticipated Problems Involving Risks (Subjects/Others): • Must be reported to the IRB and ACOS/R within 5 business days of discovery • Unanticipated problems include: • Interruptions of research due to concerns about safety, rights, or welfare of subjects, research personnel, or others • Work-related injuries requiring more than minor medical intervention or lead to serious injury or death • Any PBM Alerts related to a facility research project • All Unanticipated Serious Adverse Events

  20. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events IRB Review of Unanticipated Problems and SAEs: • Within 5 business days of report, a designated voting IRB Member/Reviewer (or the convened IRB) must: • Determine and document whether event is related, possibly related, or unrelated to the research. • If related or possibly related, must determine that event is: • Not Serious, No Action Required • Not Serious, But Minor Changes Needed via Expedited Review. • Serious, Immediate Action Needed to Prevent Harm, Report to Facility Director within 5 business days, Refer to Convened IRB Review for Resolution • Serious, but Immediate Action Not Needed to Prevent Harm, Report to Facility Director within 5 business days, Refer to Convened IRB Review for Resolution

  21. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events Serious or Continuing Noncompliance • Must be reported to the IRB and ACOS/R within 5 business days of discovery • If IRB determines serious or continuing noncompliance occurred, must be reported to Facility Director within 5 business days. • If discovered during an RCO informed consent or regulatory audit, must be reported with 5 business days to: • Facility Director • ACOS/R • IRB for Review and Resolution • R&D Committee

  22. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events Report to ORO Regional Office • Problems (including AEs) Involving Risks to Subjects or Other that are • Serious and Unanticipated and Related (or Possible Related) to the Research • Serious or Continuing Noncompliance • If identified by an RCO informed consent or regulatory audit, must also be reported to VISN Director and CRADO • Suspensions or Terminations of IRB approval

  23. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events Report to ORO Central Office (Copy to ORO Regional Office) • Assurance Changes • IRB Changes • MOU Changes • Accreditation Problems

  24. VHA Handbook 1058.01: Reporting Research Events • Comparable Reporting Required for: • Animal Welfare • Research Safety • Research Laboratory Security • Research Information Protection • Alleged Research Misconduct • Handbook Includes Summary Tables and Decision Charts to aid in facility decision making • Local SOPs Required for All Required Internal and External Reporting
