When should a study be considered “quality improvement” (not requiring institutional review) and when should an institutional review board or research compliance officer be involved?

While many have tried to draw a sharp line between these two types of data gathering, there is little clear consistency and some projects fall in a gray area.

This month we will discuss an improvement survey on hospital culture of safety which generated subsequent interest around the secondary use of QI data for further research.
