THIS MESSAGE FROM OHRP IS BEING FORWARDED BY

THE OFFICE OF RESEARCH TO ACTIVE RESEARCHERS AT UCI

 

 

Dear Colleague:

 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) is delighted to announce a new series of educational workshops entitled:

 

“Quality Assessment Workshop 2.0:  Focus on Informed Consent”

 

This FREE workshop will take place in Denver, Colorado on August 23rd, 2013. 

 

This innovative series combines fact-laden didactic sessions, challenging interactive hands-on exercises, and a highly-regarded, institution-based guest speaker who is an expert on informed consent.

 

As an institutional official, human subject protections administrator, IRB member, or investigator, you are already aware that your institution must comply with numerous regulatory requirements regarding the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Regulations for the Protection of Human Subjects when conducting HHS-supported research.  So, in order to further enhance your institution’s Human Subject Protections Program and expand your knowledge base of the Federal regulations, OHRP has designed this workshop specifically to enrich your knowledge of the regulations, and more specifically, complex issues about informed consent.

 

Attendance is limited to 100 participants, so early registration is strongly encouraged (see registration details below). 

 

This course provides 6.75 hours of human subjects’ protection education and it has been granted approval by the Council of Certified IRB Professionals (CCIP) for 4.00 hours of CIP continuing education units.  The CIP credits apply if you attend the last morning and two afternoon sessions. 

 

Target Audience

Those involved with the implementation of human research protections policies and procedures.
