  • Pre-Conference Program: A Systematic Exploration of IRB Review and Oversight of Research On, About, and Including Vulnerable Populations

    A Systematic Exploration of IRB Review and Oversight of Research On, About, and Including Vulnerable Populations is a half-day workshop which provides a basic overview of the regulations that cover and explore vulnerable populations using an expanded definition of vulnerability. In this workshop we will discuss examples relevant to the federal regulations as well as examples of populations or situations that result in vulnerable populations research such as homelessness, disability, substance use, gender and sexual diversity, undocumented residency, or other issues. This workshop will emphasize the risks in doing research with vulnerable populations, explore practical considerations for IRBs reviewing studies involving vulnerable populations, and provide examples of how to incorporate additional protections. 

    This program is eligible for 3.25 continuing education (CE) credit hours.
