Consulting Services

Protocol review and development
Catch problems before submission—let us help write your protocol or review your existing protocol to see if there are any regulatory or ethical issues that might prevent or delay IRB approval.

Consent form review and writing
WIRB's experts can write your consent form or review your existing consent form to be sure it is understandable and in compliance with regulations and applicable law.

Onsite compliance assessment for researchers
Have an expert visit your site for a consultation on best practices and assessment of compliance with regulations and other applicable law, including a review of SOPs, delegation procedures, recruitment, and consent process. If issues are identified we can help you develop and implement a corrective action plan.

Consultation services for IRBs
WIRB has experienced IRB professionals with a wealth of knowledge to provide assistance to IRBs who are facing challenges and require expertise. We have Certified IRB Professionals who can offer sound and valuable solutions to the issues that face your IRB.

Onsite compliance assessment for IRBs
WIRB's experts will evaluate your operations and provide a report and suggest best practices. We will talk with your staff and board members and review written policies and procedures, IRB minutes, and selected study files to see if the documentation is adequate and to see if your reviews are consistent with regulations, guidance, and SOPs. Following our assessment, we will conduct a gap analysis and provide information on practices.

Support for IRB review
WIRB can provide interim or permanent regulatory support for IRB review. We can advise your IRB before, during, and after the review to ensure that the required determinations are made and documented, and that the review is in compliance with regulations, guidance, and local law.

Data and safety monitoring consultations
We can provide protocol development consultation to focus your data monitoring plan and help present it to regulators.
