The Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews human subjects research for compliance with federal regulations and institutional policies with the aim of protecting the rights of participants. Gaining IRB approval is an important step in study start-up but often there is a good deal of confusion about when IRB review is required and what the IRB is looking for when they review a study. This can lead to unnecessary frustration and delays in getting IRB approval. The purpose of this session is to provide a transparent overview of the IRB process to demystify the process. At the conclusion of the session you should have a better understanding of:
When IRB review is required
What are the criteria for approval of a human subjects research study
Best practices for completing an IRB application
