Adverse Events

Reports of adverse events, which are events that occur consistent with routine care or expected outcomes that results in an unexpected morbidity or mortality in animals that was not described in the animal use protocol, should be reported at the time of the problem.

To report an adverse event, open your protocol. In your Manage Protocols screen, look for the clipboard symbol to the right of your protocol. Click on the “Report an Event” button at the top right and describe the event. Submit for review when complete.

The ORPC will review the event and contact you with any questions. The ORPC will also review with you if such an event requires reporting to the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW).
