Investigators develop research procedures that protect participants’ rights, while meeting research objectives. Reviewers strive for flexibility and individuality in the review of each research project.
http://www.brockport.edu/irb/ How is the proposal reviewed? Risk vs. benefits Equitable selection of participants Equitable recruitment of participants Soundness of research design vs. risk to participants Informed consent process Privacy and confidentiality Special populations Consistency throughout all aspects of the proposal
http://www.brockport.edu/irb/ Project Categories Category #1 Exempt – presents no possible risk to participants. Category #2 Expedited – presents minimal risk to participants. Category #3 Full Review – presents potential for harm to participants, violates rights, or requires special protections.
