ARECCI Ethics Screening Tool

Thank you for your support of ARECCI. Great news!  We have updated the user interface of the ARECCI Screening tool.  The questions and flow are the same, but the interface is more user friendly (i.e., mobile phone access).  The improved functionality allows project leads the ability to share their results with their team and colleagues (i.e, print, email, pdf). In the spirit of continual improvement, we would like to have your feedback.  Please email, or click here to access the Screening Tool feedback form.

The Alberta Innovates (2017) ARECCI Screening Tool helps determine: (1) the level of risk of your project, (2) the types of ethical risks, and (3) the appropriate type of ethics review. The ARECCI Ethics Screening Tool is divided into four steps:

  1. Preliminary Questions,
  2. Project Primary Purpose,
  3. Risk Filters, and
  4. Screening Results

Each step builds on the previous step to further identify areas of ethical concern.  Upon completion, a summary score indicates the level of risk to project participants which can inform the appropriate review process (i.e., Research Ethics Board, ARECCI Second Opinion Review, internal organizational review).
