Title Human Subject Protection (Social & Behavioral Sciences) Module 2b
Topics Description This module covers the historical events that have influenced human research. The results have been regulations, as well as federal, state, local laws and policies developed by institutions. Further, this module defines what research with human subjects is, and the regulations we follow to assess risk when conducting research in the Social and Behavioral Sciences. This module has excellent information on the role of the Institutional Review Board (IRB), again looking at issues that involve research in Social and Behavioral sciences. This module goes into detail about the elements of Informed Consent and what to look for to ensure that the consent process is not biased due to various factors (i.e., perceived authority). Lastly, privacy and confidentiality are covered in this comprehensive module.
