Adverse event

If an adverse event or unanticipated problem occurs in the course of conducting research involving human subjects, the protocol lead investigator must report it within 48 hours of the event or problem becoming known to the PLI (or their staff) to the HARC office via the HARP system. Please enter the HARP site and follow the process for a new reportable event. This "New Reportable Event" button is on the left hand list for the protocol, towards the bottom. A phone call to the HARC office, x5399, would also be helpful. If you cannot take these actions within the 48 hour window, please call the HARC office, x5399, at your earliest possibility to discuss. You will still need to enter the HARP system and go through the New Reportable Event process. The HARC office will inform the relevant funding agency as deemed necessary.
