About this Webinar

The difference between activities that meet the definition of “research” and those that do not can be hard to discern. Drawing from her 30+ years of experience the presenter shares a clear framework that will help you distinguish quality improvement (QI) activities from regulated research activities. During the webinar, we explore the characteristics of QI activities and the potential overlap of QI and regulated research. Considerations for when IRB review is required and case studies conclude the webinar.

Note: This advanced webinar is for learners who already have foundational knowledge of the Common Rule (45 CFR 46, Subpart A) and regulatory definitions.
