Protocol Amendments & Modification

When an investigator needs to make a change to their protocol, they can complete and submit the Protocol Amendment & Modification Form via Cayuse Human Ethics.

All changes to an approved protocol MUST be reviewed and approved by the IRB before the changes can be implemented. Examples of changes could include:

  • Number of Participants
  • Consent Documents
  • Funding
  • Personnel – including student researchers
  • Survey Instruments
  • Recruitment
  • Site
  • Title
  • Protocol

YSU no longer uses the previous IRB Forms. Previously approved protocols will continue to use the paper forms until their protocol expires. If an investigator has any question, feel free to contact the YSU IRB.
