HHS’ new final rules for Institutional Review Boards (IRB) related to research involving human subjects recently went into effect, and guidance on some specifics are still being issued. Both new and seasoned investigators will see some important changes in IRB processes.
While much of the focus of these new IRB requirements are on biospecimens and clinical trials, the rules also include significant changes to exempt categories, procedures for expedited review, and informed consent. Investigators will need to learn the new procedures for all future IRB applications.
To assist you in this process, researcher and IRB approval specialist, Jo Anne Schneider, Ph.D., is conducting an upcoming online training session. On Thursday, September 20th at 1 pm ET, Dr. Schneider will outline these major IRB rule changes to help you understand their impact on your research involving human subjects and its IRB approval.
By attending Dr. Schneider’s upcoming online training, you’ll receive an expert breakdown of the new IRB requirements, and her guidance on how you can more easily and effectively comply with them. Here are just a few of the topics that Dr. Schneider will cover in her upcoming training session:
- Determine whether your project qualifies for an expedited or exempt review
- Clarify the new requirements for written AND oral informed consent
- Identify whether your clinical trials must be listed in the registries or not
- More clearly determine who is responsible for IRB approval given the new multi-institution project guidelines
Who Should Attend? This expert-led online training will be of great benefit to both new and seasoned researchers.
During this online training, Dr. Schneider will compare both the old and new IRB rules, and highlight how you will need to do things differently to meet these new requirements. In addition to the items listed above, she will also outline key changes and provide you with the rationale behind them related to clinical trials.
Register for this online training today to secure your compliance with these new IRB rules, and the success of your human subject research. To attend Dr. Schneider’s upcoming online training, simply follow this link and register online.
