Subject:implementation research and managing recordings

For research on implementation of EBP efforts, many researchers are collecting recordings of the individuals/families/groups receiving the services for coding and feedback regarding fidelity to the model. It would be helpful to have feedback regarding IRB and clinical agency policies regarding the management of these recordings and what others have experienced. We are working with one agency that wants recordings of group sessions to become part of their clinical files and remain there until the youth is 26 years old. There are a number of concerns regarding this, some are specific to group treatment (that other clients will also be on the recording). What have others’ found in regards to: 1. Are these recordings considered part of the clinical files or determined to be specific for the research/training activities? 2. Best means in terms of protections, privacy, etc. of transporting, saving, and disposing the recordings. Some examples could be save on secure websites with limited access ( who can save, who can view, who can delete, etc.), save on secure networks with limited access, special delivery (FedEx) of DVDs or encrypted flash drives with recordings, watching live (e.g., polycom) and not recording 3. Regulations that need to followed to determine how long they need to be kept and when they would be destroyed All the best- Jane Jane F.
