The use of digital strategies and tools is on the rise in health research. While technologies like wearable sensors and social network platforms hold promise for understanding health behaviors, these strategies for gathering data include ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSIs) that must be considered. By encouraging transparency and open discussion about the ethical and responsible conduct of digital health research, our hope is that the academic community is better prepared to recognize and mitigate related risks.
This session will provide an overview of how digital tools/strategies, including machine learning and artificial intelligence, are used in health research. We will then highlight novel strategies for identifying possible unintended ELSIs when developing and evaluating digital health studies. Attendees will be introduced to the Digital Health Checklist (DHC) and framework. With the use of case studies, attendees will apply the DHC with a goal of improving awareness of issues related to privacy, risk/benefit assessment and data management that can be used when developing or reviewing a research protocol and consent form. In addition, participants will learn to apply a more structured approach to assessing digital health research risks.
Time will also be reserved for attendee questions.
What will I learn?
After participating in this webinar, attendees will know or be able to:
- Describe the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the digital health ecosystem
- Identify unique ethical, legal/regulatory, and social implications (ELSIs) that may arise for IRBs reviewing digital health research
- Apply a digital health decision support framework to improve the ethical design and relevant review of digital health research protocols
- Evaluate risks in terms of likelihood and impact
This session is appropriate for HRPP/IRB leadership, institutional officials, those working in IRB/HRPP offices and IRB members/Chairs, as well as researchers who use or design digital health research.
