Post-Review Processes

Each study using the LEARN network will have an ad hoc project oversight committee, composed of the project principal investigator, APPD LEARN Director, LEARN Project Manager, and other members selected by the principal investigator and APPD LEARN Director. These committees will hold regular (biweekly or monthly) conference calls during the period of the study.

After formation of the oversight committee, the APPD LEARN Director and APPD LEARN Project Manager will assist in sampling and enrollment of APPD LEARN member sites into the study protocol and will work with participating sites to obtain IRB approval prior to data collection.
