Getting Started

  1. To inquire about the EDRC Program’s services, email Phoebe Natzke at pnatzke@medicine.wisc.edu with a copy of your study protocol.
  2. After receiving your email, you will work with Phoebe to schedule a consultation to discuss logistics and the feasibility of using the EDRC Program.
  3. The EDRC Program will then develop an initial price estimate and send it to you (and your study team) for approval.
  4. Once pricing is approved by the study team, investigators will need to obtain approval from the Emergency Medicine Research Committee (EMRC) and IRB. Please note: when applying for approval you must use EDRC-specific recruitment language in the protocol.
  5. After approval by the EMRC and IRB, the EDRC Program Coordinator will work with you and your study team to develop a recruitment process and materials. From there, the EDRC team will be trained on your specific research protocol and begin recruitment.
