Risk Screening Tool (RST)

An online tool for ethics review

PHO applies a risk-based approach for ethics review, where all evidence-generating initiatives receive ethical scrutiny, proportionate to level of risk. Step one in the ethics review process is the Risk Screening Tool (RST), an online form developed by PHO.  Project leads complete the RST's 20-item checklist to achieve an ethics risk score that helps establish the required level of ethics scrutiny and the next steps for ethics review.

Find more information about the development and function of PHO’s Risk Screening Tool please see: A risk screening tool for ethical appraisal of evidence-generating initiatives.

 

You will be able to review and download/save or print a copy of the form once the form is complete...

 

If you are completing the tool as part of the PHO ethics review process, please download a copy and email it to ethics@oahpp.ca​.
