Laboratory and Animal Research
“Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that is wrong is to get caught” ~ J.C. Watts
How To Do The Right Thing? Compliance Conducting Research in Animals is A Privilege Privilege can only be granted by the IACUC IACUC approves Experimental Protocols
Objectives of the CITI Program Research Conduct According to International Standards Replacement: Replace animals with other research tools or techniques to adequately address the research question Reduction: Means minimizing the number of animals needed to perform an experiment or teach a concept Refinement: Means refining experimental protocols to minimize pain or distress whenever possible
CITI Program Requirements –Animal Researchers Three Courses 1) Animal Laboratory Researchers (25 modules) 2) Aseptic Surgery(1 module) 3) Reducing pain and distress in Laboratory Mice and Rats(14 modules)
HMC Laboratory Researchers - Biosafety Biosafety describes the policies and procedures adopted to ensure the environmentally safe application of research without endangering public health or environmental safety Obligation of Safety Standards of the Research Environment Provides — Safety of the Laboratory and Environment — Safety of the Staff — Welfare of the Experimental Animal
Take the CITI Training… Let Us Do The Right Thing

HIPAA ( H ealth I nsurance P ortability and A ccountability A ct) What is the HIPAA Privacy Rule? A federal law that protects the privacy of individually identifiable health care information Protection applies to all forms of information- electronic, paper, and oral The law creates the floor for health care privacy
HIPPA applies to the following types of Research: Biomedical Research Social and Behavioral Research Epidemiological Research Basic Science Research Psychological Research And Others…..
Privacy The desire of a person to control the disclosure of personal health information Privacy Solutions: Forbid the collection of data that might be misused Allow the collection of health information within a structure, but with rules and penalties for violation pertaining to collecting organizations Generate policies to which individual information handlers must adhere
Confidentiality The ability of a person to control release of personal health information to a care provider or information custodian under an agreement that limits further release of that information
Security Protection of privacy and confidentiality through policies, procedures and safeguards.
Why do they matter? Ethically, privacy and confidentiality are considered to be rights (in our culture) Information revealed may result in harm to interests of the individual The provision of those rights tends to ensure that the information is accurate and complete Accurate and complete information from individuals benefits society in limiting spread of diseases to society The preservation of confidentiality assists research which in turn assists patients
Users of Health Information Patient Health insurance company Laboratory Hospital Researcher State bureau Accrediting organization Employer Life insurance companies Medical information bureau Lawyers
HIPS Summary Research subjects must sign an authorization form that describes the use and disclosure of their protected health information (PHI) for research purposes Develop security and confidentiality policies HIPS authorization wording may be part of informed consent document or a separate form
Requirements for Clinical Investigators and Social and Behavioral Researchers
Clinical Investigators The persons responsible for the conduct of research involving human participants/ using material from human origin for his/her research
Social and Behavioral Researchers The persons responsible for the conduct of studies on human and animal functioning at the level of individual, small groups, institutions, organizations or communities Surveys Questionnaires, Interviews Direct observations Standardized tests Economic analyses Statistical modeling Ethnography Evaluations

CITI User Registration If your organization is a participant in the CITI Program and this is your first time at the CITI Course site, you must register for the course. This is an easy process. From the Home Page, choose New Users, "Register Here" then: 1)Choose your institutional affiliation 2)Choose a Username and Password 3)Provide contact information required by your institution 4)You will be given the opportunity to register with another institution (e.g., the institution of a collaborator). This is a handy option as you will not be required to complete the same modules required by both institutions more than once 5)Answer 1 or more questions about your research focus or research role so that the software will present you with the appropriate customized curriculum. 6)After you select the curriculum, the software will present you with the "Learners Main Menu“ 7)You will then "Click on this Grade book link to enter the course". 8)The modules will then be displayed.
