Training Program Description

This online course will provide information on the purpose and components of a research protocol and helpful strategies for writing a protocol draft with an Institutional Review Board reviewer’s perspective in mind. Three steps to writing an abstract, the difference between a study purpose and research question, and how to synthesize a review of literature that includes justification for conducting a study will be described. Other information will include: description of a critical thinking path for selecting appropriate data collection methodologies, describing risks and benefits to human subjects, and inclusion of a dissemination plan in study design.

This is a 60 minute internet media player video of a presentation with speaker and slides. A quiz concluding the presentation will summarize the topic and evaluate your understanding of the material.
