Routine Review results may require implementation of a corrective action plan.

About Corrective Action Plans

Routine Review results may include findings that require the principal investigator and research team to identify and implement a corrective action to ensure the research project is conducted in accordance with the IRB approved protocol. A Corrective Action Plan (CAP) template is available for the research team use.

    • PRO number

    • Indicate whether the finding requires immediate action/filing of a Reportable Event with the IRB.
    • Include the name of the person completing the CAP and date.
  • Save the completed document as "CAP for PRO" and include the PRO number. Retain the document in accordance with the process outlined by your department/division.
