Webinar: (2015-04) Practical and Effective Approaches to Educate IRB Members

Educating institutional review board (IRB) members can be a challenging task. How do you balance finding effective ways to deliver relevant and valuable information with limited time and resources? What are the best methodologies to evaluate the impact of your educational plan? For those responsible for or involved in educating IRB members, this webinar helped explore these questions and develop a successful IRB member education program.

An IRB is a group of individuals formally designated to review and monitor research involving human subjects to ensure that the rights and welfare of human research participants are protected in accordance with federal regulations. In addition to attending IRB meetings, the responsibilities and obligations of IRB members may include: performing review functions for new and continuing research; reviewing modifications to IRB-approved research; applying regulations and ethical principles to specific protocols; and maintaining awareness of trends and developments in protection requirements.
