Click IRB Resources

The transition to Click IRB software brings a number of advantages to the federally mandated management of human subjects research at Seattle Children’s, including increased efficiency, greater standardization across documents and processes used by the IRB, and increased visibility during the review process.

To get started, explore available training resources and reference guides.

Click IRB Training Resources

You are invited to log in and explore Click IRB – but you are advised to receive Click IRB training prior to making any submissions in Click IRB. The Investigator Manual (HRP-103) is recommended reading and is found in the Click Library on the General tab.


Templates and other documents for Click IRB are generally available in the Click Document Library. However, some documents are on the IRB website.

We have compiled a single, searchable Excel sheet listing all documents found in and outside the Click Library. The Click Document List (XLSX) has two tabs: Study Team Focused Content and Complete Library Content.

  • Study Team Focused Content: documents that directly impact your work in Click IRB.
  • Complete Library Content: all documents in the Click IRB library, including those used primarily by HSPP staff. 

For questions about the documents and where they are found, please email the IRB.

Short Form Consents and Assents

When using the short form consent process for any studies that have been initiated in the Click IRB system, please use the appropriate translated Short Form Consent Form and Short Form Assent Form (if necessary) from the lists below or in the Click IRB Library. Studies that were processed in the legacy IRB system should use the legacy Short Form cover sheets, consent forms and assent forms. All files are Word documents.
