Webinar: Community Engagement in Research: Ethical Considerations for HRPPs

When:  Nov 14, 2023 from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM (ET)

Across almost all research disciplines and methods, there has been an increase in different types of community engagement over the last two decades. Community engagement in research is common at some academic institutions, but it is a somewhat new phenomenon at others. While community engagement originated in large part as a response to abuse and exploitation of marginalized communities by researchers, and thus as a means to better protect research participants, there has historically been some tension between community engaged researchers and IRBs. This webinar aims to diffuse some of that tension, highlighting the shared ethical goals of community engagement and human research protections programs and recommended practices for reviewing research that engages community partners. Time will be reserved at the end to address questions.
