Maintaining Robust Human Research Protections When You are Not the IRB of Record

Maintaining a robust human research protection program when relying on an external IRB is something many institutions are currently gearing up for.  In the past, many organizations have relied on an external IRB occasionally, but with the soon to be implemented NIH policy, as well at the new Common Rule, there is renewed interest in “doing it right”.  
Despite relying on an external IRB, organizations still hold overall responsibility for the oversight and conduct of the research.  AAHRPP’s Domains I, II, and III, are helpful guidance toward identifying all of the responsibilities that are not in Domain II (IRB/Ethics Committee).  Those activities remain an important part of protecting research participants.
This webinar is offered to assist institutions to think about and implement procedures to comply with regulations, policies, and accreditation standards and to ensure appropriate local oversight of research and robust protection of research participants. This webinar will also briefly address how to develop reliance agreements that meet the needs of all parties and to develop internal processes to ensure that all organizational responsibilities are fulfilled while streamlining the process.
