Launching a Study or Project

Step 1: WCH Initiation Form

Academics has developed an electronic tool to help teams successfully initiate projects and studies at WCH. Please note that the PI or Project Lead will require a WCH email address to proceed further beyond this tool.

The tool or initiation form is comprised of a series of survey questions specific to the team’s project or study concept. It will help determine what resources a team needs to move forward and begin their study or project.

Once the form is completed an automatic checklist is generated outlining key contacts, links, resources, and other essential information to launch a project or study. Information from the initiation form will never be collected or fed into other systems, so teams can use it as many times as they’d like to explore different options or scenarios for their project or study.

All feedback and questions regarding the initiation form can be submitted to Evelina Rutkowski, Project Manager at Evelina.Rutkowski@wchospital.ca


Step 2: Reviews & Approvals

Part II: Service Providers’ Impact

This NEW mandatory section allows you to electronically submit your Impact Analysis forms for Medical Imagining, Laboratory Services, Pharmacy, and/or Strategic Communications for review and approval. This new approach will aim to standardize and streamline our current processes.

Please have the latest draft of your protocol ready to attach.

A WCH email address and VPN/onsite access is required along with access to internal REDCap. Please contact the REDCap Office for login or project access: REDCap@wchospital.ca. Once you have access, click below:
