This unique course offers a comprehensive review of critical areas associated with IRB administrative management and IRB office operations as part of a human research protection program (HRPP). It equips IRB senior level administrators and HRPP directors to be more effective in their positions by understanding various aspects of their responsibilities. This course was designed by experienced senior IRB managers to focus on topics and issues most relevant to IRB administration.
This course covers essential leadership skills and topics, including managing an IRB board, IRB administrative staff, and a working with other HRPP components. The IRB office is typically the core of an HRPP, but oversight of all aspects of human subjects research requires a variety of expertise and input. Whether an institution has an extensive research administration program with multiple departments or a small operation where a handful of staff conduct various types of review, it is vital to understand the distinctions between IRB regulatory review and additional protocol-specific ancillary reviews.
Topic-focused modules explore contemporary IRB management issues such as working with ancillary committees, navigating single IRB review, and communicating effectively with internal and external stakeholders. The course also includes a module on designing and implementing educational programs and initiatives as well as a module on managing IRB noncompliance.
Recommended for individuals who have already completed the IRB Administration Foundations course and/or who have three or more years’ experience in IRB administration.
