This page includes information in support of data sharing, goverance and IRB processes for the GPC.

Data Sharing and Governance

All GPC sites have executed the GPC Master Data Sharing Agreement 2014.

Earlier Drafts

One example would be, EGRET, a Medical Informatics Data Sharing Agreement we found that is not too dissimilar from the HERON data sharing agreement used by the University of Kansas Medical Center and its affilated hospitals and clinics.

Another is the HERON IRB protocol.

External Collaborator Agreement
