HSR&D Data and Safety Monitoring Board

The HSR&D Data Safety Monitoring Board monitors the safety and enrollment of HSR&D funded multi-site research. Monitoring begins with a review of the Data Analysis Plan (DAP) prior to study funding and continues with annual evaluation of study progress, including patient accrual and retention, and adverse events. The DSMB can recommend study modifications or stopping research as part of its review. DSMB oversight ends when a study no longer interacts with subjects.

The DSMB Charter (331 KB) is available here.

Instructions for the Data Analysis Plan (DAP) are available here.
