Human Subjects Research Training
For more information contact Laura Isaacs, IRB Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cottage Health Institutional Review Board (CH IRB) requires documentation of human subjects research training for all researchers and key research personnel for any project that involves human subjects (for both full board or expedited reviews).
Key research personnel are those individuals involved with identifying, consenting, and treating potential research participants or interacting with personally identifiable data, and those involved with applying to and interacting with the IRB. A research study will not receive final IRB approval until all key research personnel have submitted documentation of human subjects research training.
The IRB provides training via the CITI Human Subjects Research Training education program. Investigators are assigned specific training to best meet the needs of the type of research being conducted.
