If you are involved in research, it’s important to receive proper training and certification in human subjects safety and ethics. Fortunately, the Office for Human Research Protections is offering a free training module that covers all necessary topics to ensure compliance with federal regulations and ethical and responsible research practices.
In addition, the Office for Human Research Protections is hosting a series of webinars that cover a variety of topics related to the Common Rule. The webinar, titled “Nothing basic about it, but we’ll try to make it so – Common Rule ABCs with OHRP,” aims to explain the Common Rule terms in plain language. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what is considered research and who is a human subject.
The webinar also includes valuable insights on human subjects safety and ethics, exemption categories, and how researchers should approach doing research with data and bio-specimens under the Common Rule. The second part of the webinar will cover how that works with repositories and future use, as well as figuring out “engagement” before saying “I do” to the Common Rule. One of the most important aspects of the Common Rule is respecting persons, from basic requirements to embracing participant-centered informed consent. Other topics include exemption categories, biospecimens, data repositories, and informed consent.
Attending this webinar is a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest regulations and practices and ensure that you are conducting ethical and responsible research. Be sure to mark your calendars for this important event.
