Facilitation of Integration of New Research Volunteers

This newly developed form may be completed by the PI or Faculty who will be overseeing a Research Volunteer.  If the Research Volunteer will not have any contact with Blood, Body Fluids, Tissue, Animals, or Patients, then the Healthcare Worker Immunization requirements may be WAIVED.  The problem in the past has been that there was no communication to the Volunteer Office or Infection Prevention and Control Office indicating the presence or absence of potential exposure associated with the volunteer's assignment.  Going forward, use of this form should eliminate unnecessary headaches/hassle for all concerned.
