Patient Centered Outcomes Research

The rapidly growing funding for patient-centered outcomes research is affecting many organizations and IRBs.   Research projects comparing outcomes of various clinical practices, including both observational and randomized studies yield valuable evidence in a learning health care system. This type of research also poses some new considerations for IRBs as they proceed to efficiently review comparative effectiveness research without compromising protections.  This webinar will address the ethical issues that have been raised to date in this type of research, and offer guidelines for training IRB members to review outcomes research.  Also, some attention will be given to all activities conducted along the boundary between research and practice.

Vulnerable Populations

The ethical conduct of human research involving vulnerable populations continues to be an appropriate focus of HRPPs everywhere.  Sponsors of research continue to commit substantial resources to assessing, managing, and treating the challenges (both physical/medical and mental/behavioral) with which these communities grapple.  This webinar will explore cutting edge issues in how an HRPP should address the issues of research in vulnerable populations in areas ranging from recruitment and informed consent to retention and compensation.
