This page contains information for principal investigators about the electronic delegation log within the BSRBR-RA database.

Approving access to the BSRBR-RA database for new research team members

The electronic delegation log has now been launched and the process for approving new staff members at your centre working on the BSRBR-RA has changed.

As Principal Investigator for your centre, you will now be required to log in to the BSRBR-RA database to electronically authorise a request from a new Research Team Member. The steps below should be followed in order to do this:

Step 1

An email will be sent to you with details of the researcher requesting access. This is a prompt to log in to the database.

Step 2

Once logged in to the database, follow the on-screen link to Electronic Delegation Log. This is the last link at the bottom of the page.

Click Edit to view and amend details of the new researcher's access request. Check that the delegation details (e.g. obtaining consent, performing clinical observations) are appropriate. To approve the user, use the Access Status drop-down menu to select Access Approved by PI and click Update.

Recording an end date for researchers no longer involved in the BSRBR-RA

The BSRBR-RA study team will record an end date as they are informed that an individual researcher is no longer working with the study. Periodically, we will send you an email with a list of the current active researchers at your centre. Please review this and advise us of any researchers who have left the study, so we can record an end date for these researchers.
