August Update from the RI

From the desk of the Executive Director

Jamie Caldwell

Greetings Research Community:
I hope you have been enjoying your summer and the recent total solar eclipse, which took place in North America. Depending on where you were located, you might have seen a full or partial solar eclipse.  Either way, it was very exciting. 

Since we are in the first few weeks of the new fiscal year, I wanted to share some news and updates and also provide a year in review from some of our division members.

Finally, a big congratulations to Dr. Roy Jensen, Director of the Cancer Center on the renewal of the NCI Cancer Center grant ($11 million over five years), and to Dr. Richard Barohn, Director of Frontiers on receiving the CTSA Award ($24.9 million over five years) supporting the U, K and T components!.

 We look forward to an exciting and productive fiscal year 2018   

Jamie Caldwell, Executive Director
University of Kansas Medical Center Research Institute

Clinical Research Administration Regulatory Management

During the past year we have made a number of changes, and while much work has been done, we still have a long way to go.

First, there have been many new personnel additions in the Clinical Research Administration Division of the KUMC Research Institute, and we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce the new staff in the Division of Clinical Research Administration:

Kathy Jurius
kjurius@kumc.edu
8-5705
Disease Groups: Neurology - Alzheimer’s disease, Neurology – Huntington’s disease, Neurology – Epilepsy, Wichita. Kathy comes to the RI from Via Christi Hospitals in Wichita and brings with her several years of experience in regulatory management of clinical trials. She joined the CRA Regulatory team in April and has been managing projects for these disease groups since July.

Paige Pelaccio
ppelaccio@kumc.edu
8-5751
Disease Groups: Neurology – Neuromuscular. Paige is a registered nurse who joined the RI from KUMC's Integrative Medicine Department and is working toward her Master of Science in Nursing in Clinical Research Management. Paige also joined the CRA Regulatory team in April and has been managing projects for the neuromuscular division since July.

Jessica Punjabi
jpunjabi@kumc.edu
5-8948
Disease Groups: Dietetics & Nutrition, School of Nursing, Radiology, Ophthalmology, Cardiology – Structural Heart/Interventional Cardiology. Jessica’s background includes several years of experience as a Clinical Research Coordinator in ophthalmology. She joined the RI in early June and has been managing these disease groups since July.

Process improvement update

CRA Regulatory began an initiative in the spring of 2017 to streamline our processes, particularly in the area of new study startup. RI staff is collaborating with the IRB and UKHS to reduce the time needed for study startup, as well as to provide improved tools and guidance for study teams and RI project managers. In the regulatory management sphere, this includes:

  • Reduction of pre-submission negotiation with sponsors over consent form language;
  • Expanded training of RI project managers;
  • Improved guidance, tools, and checklists.

Increased communication with investigators and study coordinators is also an important aspect of process improvement. Town hall style meetings with study coordinators are planned on a quarterly basis, with the next session planned for November 8.

Clinical Research Administration Budgets and Contracts Management

Our team has implemented strategies to better equip the BCA team to negotiate Clinical Trial Budgets. This ongoing process has been improved due to a series of trainings that brought awareness to the “universal assets” of the University of Kansas Medical Center, the Principal Investigator and the Research Institute as a whole.

Our team, which represent a cadre of professionals, is in a position to better leverage our assets in order to acquire more money for our clinical trials. Our team developed the Pre-Study Start Up Kick Off Meetings, which allow the key players of each clinical trial to address regulatory, budgetary, and communication matters in addition to time lines in preparation for each respective study and its requirements.

Our team has defined and implemented the new alignment process, which maps the CRA process for Study Start Up, as it relates to BCA/PM/IRB.

KUMC-RI CRA Division will again host the Society of Clinical Research Associates Certification event.

  • January 18, 2018: Preparation and Review Course
  • January 19, 2018: SoCRA CCRP Certification Exam

Event information is loaded in the KUMC RI events calendar. For more information or questions, contact Kevin Smilor.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS- Be sure ClinicalTrials.gov is updated properly

Clinicaltrials.gov requires regular review of study information to verify it is accurate and up-to-date. The “responsible party” (PI, grant awardee or sponsor) is accountable for information posted about the study. To ensure trial information meets site requirements, the information must be reviewed/released at specific times during a study, including:

  • Every six months for studies that are enrolling
  • Annually for active but NOT enrolling studies
  • When there is a change in the enrollment status
  • When enrollment numbers need to be updated
  • When there are changes in the protocol (e.g. eligibility criteria)

Some studies require results and adverse events to be posted. If your study is an “applicable” clinical trial, results need to be posted within 12 months of the study's completion date (NOTE: this is independent from publishing status).

Clinicaltrials.gov recently emailed notifications to investigators/responsible parties that had one or more records on the site requiring attention. If you received this email, the notification relates to your study records that are non-compliant with site requirements. Common issues include: failure to keep records up-to-date; not releasing previous updates; and failure to review the record at required time points. Failure to update postings when required raises red flags with the FDA.

If you received one of these emails, then you need to take action. Log in at register.clinicaltrials.gov (organization: UKansasMCRI) to review, edit and release study information. If you do not know your login information, are unsure of what study needs attention, how to edit study information, need guidance navigating the clinicaltrials.gov system or have general questions about the site and site requirements, contact Kevin Smilor (ksmilor@kumc.edu, 913-588-3230).

Entering Study Subject in CRIS- VELOS

The Velos eResearch Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS), commonly referred to as CRIS at KUMC, is used to manage and track clinical trials and study participants at KUMC. Additionally, CRIS is an integral part of the KU Health System billing process. Study and participant data is exported to O2 daily. When information is accurately entered into CRIS, it greatly improves clinical research billing compliance. For compete details or questions, please contact Kevin Smilor (ksmilor@kumc.edu, 913-588-3230).

Research Training and Education

A new Study Coordinator program will begin this fall! Please email questions to Mary Hindle, Research Institute education and training manager, at mhindle2@kumc.edu.

Faculty Town Hall:

NIH Forms E and Clinical Trials Funding Opportunities

Date: Sept. 26, 2017
Time: 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Room in KC: 2008 Orr Major
Room in Wichita: Roberts Center Conference Room

This will be an opportunity for faculty and staff to learn about NIH Notice NOT-OD-17-062 NIH “FORMS-E” Grant Application Form and Instructions which will be in effect for application packages with a due date on or after January 25, 2018. The application packages will be available October 25.

FORMS-E consolidates human subjects and clinical trials information into one form: PHS Human Subject and Clinical Trial Information form. This form collects: Study Population Characteristics, Inclusion Enrollment, Protection and Monitoring Plans, Protocol Synopsis, and an area for other CT-related attachments.

If you are conducting an NIH-defined clinical trial, you will want to attend this session to find out about the changes to the policies and regulations, application forms, and funding opportunity announcements, as itemized below:

  • The requirement to apply to an FOA that specifically allows for the submission of clinical trial applications for due dates beginning January 25, 2018.
  • Good Clinical Practice training expectations for NIH staff, grantees, and contractors that went into effect January 2017.
  • Updated peer review criteria that will be included in FOAs for clinical trial applications and solicitations for due dates on/after January 25, 2018.
  • New Human Subject Information form requirements for clinical trials that will be included in updated application forms (FORMS-E) for due dates on/after January 25, 2018, and contract solicitations published as of January 25, 2018.
  • Use of a single IRB for non-exempt, multi-site clinical trials for application due dates on/after January 25, 2018.
  • Expanded ClinicalTrials.gov registration and reporting to include all NIH supported clinical trials.

If you answer “yes” to the following questions, then you are conducting an NIH-defined Clinical Trial:

  1. Does the study involve human participants?
  2. Are the participants prospectively assigned to an intervention?
  3. Is the study designed to evaluate the effect of the intervention on the participants?
  4. Is the effect that will be evaluated a health-related biomedical or behavioral outcome?
