  • This is right out of the grant. For 36 years research was confined to specific areas - initially PH4 and Vanderbilt 3, and then when the Irving Center was created, the adult inpatient and outpatient units moved to PH10. Pediatric outpatients have been seen in VC3 since that time. The dedicated unit in Babies hospital no longer exists, and research beds are now dispersed throughout childrens' hospital CER partnership will involve working together in the ED to enhance pre-ED work, ACNCs which are technically off-site but are an area of joint concern.

    8. 8. Goals for Clinical Research Center <ul><li>Continue to provide both inpatient and outpatient space and dedicated personnel for patient-oriented research. </li></ul><ul><li>Expand support for patient oriented research beyond the confines of the Clinical Research Center (CRC). </li></ul><ul><li>Partner with the Community Engagement Resource (CER) to enhance off-site research. </li></ul>
    9. 9. Implementation and Oversight: Changing the Culture <ul><li>CUMC 2006: 807 new protocols, 1563 renewals </li></ul><ul><li>Pilot survey of inpatient units (Neurology and Pediatric Oncology) </li></ul><ul><li>Collaboration between CRC, hospital and School of Nursing to assess staff knowledge, develop and implement research curriculum for nurses, PAs, MDs. </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a mechanism to Identify participants in research protocols. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Implementation and Oversight: Research in the ICUs and Emergency Departments <ul><li>New York State has no statute or regulation that clearly identifies a legally authorized representative, and no case law that resolves the issue. </li></ul><ul><li>This situation prevents research in critical care units and Emergency Departments. </li></ul><ul><li>18 clinical trials unable to enroll any patients or where enrollment was reduced by 50%. </li></ul><ul><li>In collaboration with Dean’s office and University Counsel, we have documented need for change in the New York State Legally Authorized Representative law. </li></ul>
    11. 11. Regulatory Knowledge Support And Ethics Resource <ul><li>Education/Training </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Revised Good Clinical Practice requirement – awaiting institutional approval </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bimonthly workshops on regulatory and ethical issues – growing attendance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Research staff and investigators have had little training in legal/ethical theory of informed consent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide IRB/HIPAA training </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>basic (2 hr), advanced (6 wks) – tracking results </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Department-specific presentations </li></ul></ul></ul>

    14. 14. Challenges <ul><li>What level of protocol review and data safety monitoring is required for CTSA protocols? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the most efficient means to educate MDs, nurses, health professionals and participants? </li></ul><ul><li>How do we develop a process to permit clinically important research with adults who lack decisional capacity in NY? </li></ul>
