Vidatum has announced the successful implementation of an ethics review system for the Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP), the professional body representing over 4,200 general practitioners (GPs) in Ireland.
The ethics review system, developed by Vidatum in collaboration with the ICGP, streamlines the ethical review process for general practice research projects involving human subjects, ensuring compliance with national and international ethical guidelines and regulations. The system enables researchers to submit ethics review applications online and track the review progress. It allows the research ethics committee administrator to assign reviewers from the committee’s members and communicate with reviewers and applicants.
The ICGP’s COO, Professor Claire Collins welcomed the implementation of the new system, saying: “The ethics review process is a vital aspect of research involving human subjects, and it can often be complex and time-consuming. The new ethics review system, developed by Vidatum, will streamline the process for researchers in the general practice arena, enabling them to submit applications online and track review progress in real-time. This is a significant step forward, facilitating ethical research practices.
The implementation of the ethics review system for the ICGP is the latest in a series of successful collaborations between Vidatum and leading research organisations and institutions in Ireland and beyond. With a focus on simplifying research management, Vidatum is committed to providing cutting-edge software solutions that meet the evolving needs of researchers and research organisations worldwide.
