January 26, 2012 / 3:30-5:00 p.m. ET 

Registration Form

Community-based participatory research is a popular methodology to study participants in hard-to-reach populations. Community involvement helps make many research projects more successful. But community-based research has its own set of ethical issues that can be challenging to IRBs that are not experienced or knowledgeable in this type of research. This webinar will describe the processes and issues involved in community-based participatory research and what IRB members and researchers need to know.

Ethical Requirements in Exempt Research (Element II.2.B.)
April 24, 2012 / 8:00-9:30 a.m. ET
April 26, 2012 / 3:30-5:00 p.m. ET

Although exempt from the regulations, research that is determined to be exempt must still be conducted under ethical standards and respecting the rights and welfare of the participants. This webinar will discuss the ethical considerations in exempt research including obtaining consent and maintaining confidentiality of data.

Quality Metrics for Institutional Review Board Performance
July 24, 2012 / 8:00-9:30 a.m. ET
July 26, 2012 / 3:30-5:00 p.m. ET

IRBs must both comply with regulations, as well as make ethical decisions concerning approval of research. This webinar will explore measures of quality of IRB performance in both areas.

IRB Review of Research Involving Adults with Diminished Capacity to Consent (Elements II.4.A and II.4.B.)
October 23, 2012 / 8:00-9:30 a.m. ET
October 25, 2012 / 3:30-5:00 p.m. ET

Almost every IRB deals with research involving participants with diminished capacity to consent, either in projects directly studying such populations or by incidental inclusion. This webinar will describe the AAHRPP requirements for research involving participants with diminished capacity to consent, what researchers should know and plan for, and how IRBs should review and approve such research.
