Close Out Policy and Guidance

When the results from a DF/HCC research have been published and no further research will ensue, the research must be formally closed out following DF/HCC Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The Office for Human Research Studies (OHRS) must be notified of the study completion and all materials related to the study must be securely maintained after the research concludes.

This section provides information and required documents for policies and guidance associated with research close out.
