Site visitors are selected by AAHRPP staff based on their experience, and generally represent four perspectives: public or participant, human research protection, research, and organizational. In some cases, individual site visitors might represent more than one perspective. Not all four perspectives need to be represented by a team. Efforts are undertaken to tailor the site visit team to the needs of the Organization. For example, for each site visit, site visitors should have the appropriate expertise in the type of research conducted (e.g., clinical or social science) and knowledge about the type of research setting (e.g., community hospital, research site, or university). The number of site visitors assigned to a team depends upon the size and complexity of the Organization’s Human Research Protection Program.
