TAHSN Research Committee

REB Board of Record

The TAHSN Board of Record is based on an agreement among TAHSN-qualified academic hospitals. This agreement allows TAHSN institutions to defer Research Ethics oversight to a single TAHSN member REB (“Lead REB”) for studies that involve two or more TAHSN institutions. With this process, one hospital can accept the research ethics review of a qualified REB at another TAHSN institution.

The TAHSN Board of Record model is efficient because only one investigator ("Lead Applicant") is required to submit the application and apply for ethical approval from the Lead's Research Ethics Board ("Lead" or "Lead REB"). In essence, they are submitting to the TAHSN Board of Record on behalf of all participating TAHSN sites.

Participating Institutions: Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, The Hospital for Sick Children, University Health Network, Women’s College Hospital.
