  • Pre-Conference Program: Single IRBs Are Here: Are You Ready?

    Single IRBs Are Here: Are You Ready? is an intermediate-level educational program will review the different central IRB models, and it will examine the steps IRB administrative offices need to consider to utilize or serve as a single or central IRB. In addition, this practical course will focus on how to implement best practices related to utilizing single IRB review either as a reviewing or relying site, and different approaches to centralizing all of these processes. This course is ideal for individuals working as HRPP/IRB administrators, institutional officials, IRB chairs, and anyone responsible for the implementation of central IRBs.

    This program is eligible for 6.5 continuing education (CE) credit hours.
