IRBs are deliberative bodies charged with protecting research subjects while promoting ethical research. While IRBs are designed to include different perspectives, it is important to consider who is absent from the table.
During this webinar, panelists from the Consortium to Advance Effective Research Ethics Oversight (www.aereo.org) will discuss several recent empirical studies, including work related to the diversity of IRB membership at universities and academic medical centers, the incorporation of outside expertise into IRB deliberation, and the unique role of non-scientific IRB members.
This webinar will be in meeting format, so attendees will have the opportunity to interact directly with the speakers. Time will also be devoted to answering attendee questions.
What will I learn?
- Discuss mechanisms for broadening perspectives included in IRB decision-making
- Describe empirical findings from relevant studies
- Consider questions for future exploration
The topic of this webinar is relevant to public health, biomedical, and SBER researchers; research staff; IRB members; and anyone working with human research protections programs (HRPPs) and IRBs.
