Tip of the Week

Running out of room to store paper consent documents? You can now scan consents during an open study, or after a study has closed, and destroy the original hard copy document. A new policy and procedures for scanning consents is available at OVCR’s “Guidance For Electronic Storage of Research Documents“.
