Collaborating for Compliance: The IRB’s Role in the HRPP

Collaborating for Compliance: The IRB’s Role in the HRPP (formerly Putting Together the HRPP Puzzle) 

Research oversight is an institution-wide concern. From investigators and research coordinators to IRB members and staff to institutional officials—all members of an institution's human research protections program (HRPP) are key to ensuring high quality, ethical research and clinical trials.

This half-day or full-day program will provide participants with the tools they need to be effective members of their HRPP by highlighting best practices and common oversight challenges. The course is designed for all members of an institution's HRPP but places special emphasis on addressing the role and function of researchers and research staff in relation to the IRB.

This course is highly customizable to help best suit your institution' needs, and works best with participants from large institutions and/or multiple institutions who attend the program together. Participants will discuss how to strengthen their HRPP, how to communicate within and across units of the HRPP, and will address their institution's specific challenges.

What Past Participants Are Saying

The course brought to light areas that I need to focus on within my organization. Communication among the parts that make up the HRPP is essential and I plan to utilize what I learned to make this happen.

I loved the discussion at the tables. THIS IS MOST HELPFUL!!!! Best practices always give you an opportunity to take away something that you can implement at home.

It was helpful to look at the overall HRPP, not just the IRB's role.

I believe that it is important to have collaboration with all identities involved in research. This type of collaboration ensures that the "whole" research team is focused on human subjects.
