Job Description

It is the responsibility of the Administrative Coordinator to organize physicians seeking to use compassionate use of a drug/device and confirm treating physicians obtain IRB pre-approval prior to engaging the FDA and Sponsor. Following pre-approval, the Coordinator must adhere to internal and external protocols that govern the request process for compassionate use drugs/devices. Upon FDA and Sponsor approval, the Coordinator must ensure the treating physician obtains informed consent, to the extent possible, and that the consent documentation meets requirements. The Coordinator will be responsible for ensuring fully signed consent forms are scanned into patient charts and that all initial and follow up documents are submitted (e.g., FDA Form 3926, FDA close outs, IRB submissions).

The Administrative Coordinator may be asked to liaise with family members to provide information and to schedule appointments/telephone calls with treating physicians. This role requires significant coordination with multiple departments at South Shore Health including the IRB, legal, pharmacy, medicine and infectious disease. The Administrative Coordinator will report to Stephanie Smith, Director of Research, and is expected to attend, and in some cases coordinate, internal meetings.
