If you've been interested in hosting an AYD, but have concerns about your institution's budget and educational needs, now is your chance to have your questions answered. AYD is an easy, cost-effective way to meet your continuing education goals and provide your human research protection program (HRPP)/IRB staff, researchers, research team members, and institutional officials with essential regulatory knowledge, ethical principles, best practices, and administrative tools. No matter what your particular educational needs, AYD can help you fulfill them and we have strategies to help minimize the budgetary impact.
Past participants have told us how much they've benefitted from having their entire HRPP in the same room, at the same time, learning the same information together:
Information given to all individuals involved in the process of IRB submissions and approvals is an excellent idea…[and] promotes common knowledge and understanding about why an IRB is in existence and what their roles and responsibilities are. Past AYD liaison, Brown University
And since we bring the education and renowned faculty directly to you, there are no attendee travel or lodging costs. We organize the session around your schedule and plan content to address your institutional concerns or challenges:
PRIM&R designed a program around [our] current research environment and issues…which provided a truly valuable educational program for our IRB members, investigators, coordinators and staff. Past AYD liaison, Community Health Care, Inc.
