* 1. Dear Researcher or Research Coordinator,

You are invited to take part in a quality improvement project being implemented by the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences (TBRHSC) Research Ethics Office. The survey will take about 20 minutes of your time to complete. You are being invited because you are a researcher, research team member or research administrator who has submitted to the TBRHSC REB, and we would like your feedback on the current status of REB review, and researcher submissions. This survey is in follow up to an identical survey released last year.  The intent is to compare the results of this years survey to last year and determine if our steps in quality improvement have changed your perceptions of our processes, and second to identify any barriers in communication that may exist between the REB and the researchers who submit.

This is an confidential survey. Please ensure you do not include information that may identify you. You may choose not answer any question you like. Once you have submitted your answers, you will not be able to withdrawal you data from the project. Please note that the online survey is hosted by “Survey Monkey” which is a web survey company located in the USA.
