Navigating sIRB Complexities: An Interactive Session

Have a nagging question about sIRBs, but you’re not sure who to ask (or if it’s a “dumb” question)? You’re not the only one!

Institutional research and IRB experts share insights, strategic priorities, and guidance for preparing your institution for sIRB mandates.

Presenters will cover some of the most common questions they’ve encountered – then we spend an extended Q&A period addressing our live audience members' questions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe typical approaches to sIRB reliance
  • Outline how to overcome common pitfalls in working with an sIRB
  • Explain responsibilities for the sIRB and for the relying institution
  • Recognize the impact of sIRB requirements on study teams
