As Supervisor it is your responsibility to REVIEW your student’s ethics checklist (including participant documentation such as the information sheet and agreement form), to make sure the checklist is complete and the student has clearly identified potential risk and discussed how they intend to mitigate against risk. If the checklist has not been completed properly, you can return the checklist to student online.
Once you are satisfied that the checklist is ready to be approved, you will either:
APPROVE if the checklist has been identified as low risk OR
FORWARD the checklist to the Ethics Programme Team if the checklist has been identifed as high risk. Risk is identified by the responses given to the questions.
To review the student checklist to review and approve log onto OEC Admin System (Cohort). Log on using your BU username* and password. *Please do not include @bournemouth.ac.uk.
