CTO Stream has two categories of standardized forms: clinical trials and observational research. Each form has built in ‘smart logic’ to ensure that applicants will only need to answer questions or upload documents that are relevant to their research.
The application form templates are for reference purposes only. Research teams must login to CTO Stream in order to complete and submit their applications for REB review.
The appropriate template should be used when creating the study-specific consent form submitted with the initial study-wide application (PIA) in CTO Stream. Select the appropriate template(s) and ensure you follow all of the instructions listed on the first page of the template.
If you are submitting an oncology study through CTO Stream to be reviewed by the Ontario Cancer Research Ethics Board (OCREB) please use the OCREB Informed Consent Form Template, located on the OCREB website.
The Participation Agreement provides the framework for allowing sites to delegate ethical review and oversight for research conducted under its auspices, to a CTO Qualified board. This delegation occurs on a study-by-study basis, meaning that a site can choose whether to use CTO Stream for each individual study.
If you have questions about the Participation Agreement, please contact the CTO Help Desk at email@example.com
For Sponsors/CROs who require a service agreement in order to issue payments to CTO for REB fees, CTO has developed a Master Service Agreement template.
