Please choose a suitable procedure, reading it carefully to ensure that it pertains to your project. Make sure you reference the correct procedure ID in your application. If you know, without starting a CUREC 1A application, that you need to complete a CUREC 2 (this will only apply to SSH IDREC applicants), please still check the approved procedures above to see if any parts of your project can be covered by a CUREC procedure(s). In general, you should use CUREC procedures alongside, and in harmony with, your individual study design or study-specific procedure. They should not replace your project or hinder your project's aims.
In order to stay within the CUREC 1 or CUREC 1A frame, it is usually not possible to fully apply more than one approved procedure to the research. There may be some exceptions, depending on the exact procedures and whether they are to be applied simultaneously, or in tandem. If researchers intend to follow two or more approved procedures, they will need to consult the relevant IDREC Secretariat to determine whether or not a CUREC 2 form needs to be completed.
Even where procedures do not fully cover a project, they can be used as part of a CUREC 2 application to mitigate issues as far as they pertain to the procedure(s) in question.
Where there is not a specific template information sheet or consent form associated with an approved procedure, the generic participant information sheet template is recommended:
Participants at risk
Procedure 4 and its associated document above are for studies involving the administration of clinical interviews incorporating questions concerning current and past psychiatric symptoms, experience of traumatic events including childhood sexual and physical abuse, and questions concerning illegal drug use.
Procedure 9 and its associated document above are for the recruitment and testing of participants selected to score highly on measures indicating slightly higher than average vulnerability to psychological disorders.
Children (including in schools), teachers
Procedure 15 and its associated documents above are for research on teachers and teaching in educational settings for typically-developing students (latest approved version May 2013).
Procedure 25 and its associated documents above are for research on children using non-invasive methods in institutional or non-institutional settings. It may be used in conjunction with an opt-out form for research fulfilling certain conditions, as detailed in the procedure. Procedure 25 may be cited in applications to both the Social Sciences and Humanities, and Medical Sciences IDRECs (latest approved version 2 June 2016).
Scans, recordings or other non-invasive tests (children)
Procedure 11 and its associated documents above are for studies using non-invasive assessment of infant eye movements and head movements in response to images and sounds, for typically developing infants and toddlers (latest approved version 21 November 2013).
Procedure 12 and its associated documents above are for studies involving non-invasive assessment of electrophysiological recordings from the scalp of typically developing infants and toddlers (latest approved version 21 November 2013).
Procedure 23 and its associated documents above are for studies involving blood glucose testing in typically-developing adults (latest approved version July 2013).
AP24 and associated documents are for studies involving the taking of urine, saliva, stool and/or venous blood samples from healthy adult volunteers.
