1 iStar How to Create an Amendment
iStar Basics Training Course For Investigators and Study Staff

2 Overview User Roles: All user roles.
Purpose: Detail what the iStar amendment application is and the types of study modifications that will require this application to be submitted. Outline some of the steps needed to complete an iStar amendment submission. Note: At this time, iStar only supports the submission of iStar amendments for studies already approved in iStar.

3 In iStar Your study file consists of 1) the study application, 2) all the attached documents in the application (i.e., consent forms, flyers, protocol), and 3) the history log, reflecting all the correspondence and action letters. Only the study team members have the rights to change/modify the study application or attached documents. When the study is returned to you during the initial review process, iStar automatically allows you to edit or modify the study file. However, once the study is approved, the study team is no longer allowed to edit the study file directly, since this represents the most current and accurate version of the study application and details.

4 What can you do in Amendment?
To make ANY change or modification to any part of the study application or attached documents, the study team must submit an iStar amendment. Examples of changes that can be done through amendment: Protocol changes Consent form changes Changes in study personnel Addition of recruitment flyers and materials Changes in funding sources Subject recruitment changes iStar only allows ONE amendment to be in process at a time.

13 Edit Modified Study Go to a section where you can change ‘Study Coordinator’. This section called ‘Study Personnel (for a study already submitted to the IRB)’. Click on to choose a new Study Coordinator (see iStar.pps slide show for reference how to do single person selection). Reset button is only if you want to remove a current coordinator and do not have a new one. If under ‘Edit Amendment’ you have specified to update other parts of the study, then before exiting from Edit Modified Study you should go to the other pages and update them as well.

14 Edit Modified Study When you are done modifying ,
select ‘Save’ and then ‘Exit’ to get back to the Amendment Workspace.

15 Submitting the Amendment
Final step: NOTE: If the Amendment was to add co-investigators, then ‘Send Co-Investigator Instructions’ needs to be sent out. A new co-investigator that is added to the study needs to ‘Agree to Participate in the Study’ before submitting an Amendment to IRB. Must select ‘Submit to IRB’ for the Amendment to be submitted to IRB Administrators.

16 How do I know if my Amendment has been Submitted?
State of the Amendment has changed from ‘Pre-Submission’ to ‘Awaiting IRB Administrator Assignment’. You have ‘History’ that it has been submitted, by whom and when.
