Is My Project Research?

Some projects, by definition, are not “research” and therefore do not require an IRB prior to the start of the project.  We have put together several documents describing the differences between “research” and projects like quality assurance, quality improvement, and/or program evaluation.  These documents are intended to provide a basic overview of these different types of projects, but ultimately the decision of whether a project requires IRB approval or not is made by the UW IRB, not the researcher.  These guidance documents are provided to educate the researcher on the types of projects that may not require IRB approval, but we highly encourage you to contact the IRB at prior to starting any project, in order to ensure that it has been correctly categorized as research or QA/QI/PE.
