This policy provides a campus-wide definition of “adverse events” and identifies reporting and review requirements for both protocol-related and non-protocol-related adverse events. The purpose of adverse event reporting is to improve monitoring, focus resources on problem areas, ensure appropriate follow-up when problem areas are identified, and clarify expectations between the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs), the principal investigators, and the veterinary and animal care staff. The ultimate goal of this policy is to improve animal welfare.
*For purposes of this policy, "research" also includes teaching and outreach.
