Human Subjects Decision Tree & Samples

The 2018, and more recent, changes to the NIH Human Subjects section requirements have made completing this section more difficult.

The Human Subjects Decision Tree was developed to:

  1. Help investigators determine what human subjects requirements they need to meet
  2. Provide the Investigator with aides to complete the section
    • Checklists of necessary items to complete
    • Samples of human subjects sections from a range of recent, awarded grants

How to use the Decision Tree

  1. Click here to go to the Decision Tree tool Note: Lurie Children’s Office 365 environment is required (log into Office.com with Lurie Children’s credentials) in order to access the form.
  2. You will be led through a series of questions to determine what human subjects information you will need to provide in your submission.
  3. You can request relevant checklists and samples and they will be sent directly to you.

What if you just want a sample?

If you already know what type of human subjects samples you need, you may either:

  1. Use the Decision Tree tool to request these.
  2. Ask the research navigators for a specific sample.
  3. Ask your OSP representative to obtain the sample for you.
