New & Updated Content (October 2018 - March 2019)

Review CITI Program’s new and updated content.


CITI Program Content is Current with the Revised Common Rule

CITI Program has updated content to reflect the 2018 Requirements of the Common Rule. As a reminder, all related modules have been automatically updated. No action is required from your organization, but we suggest periodically reviewing your gradebooks (courses) to see if updates are needed (for example, adding a new module).

CITI Program has also created resources to help the research community understand the revisions to the Common Rule. Basic and Additional Elements of Consent from 46.116(b) and (c) of the 2018 Requirements was recently added to these resources to further help understand the changes to informed consent. Organizations can also add the Revised Common Rule course for comprehensive training covering the Final Rule updates to the Common Rule.
