Training Program Description

This interactive training program is designed to engage and prepare community partners to both interact with Institutional Review Boards (IRB) and to perform ethical research practices in their community settings. There are already many hurdles for research that respectfully engages with communities. Through the use of interactive training, this program strives to reduce or remove some of these hurdles. The goal is to build community partners' capacities both to engage with the difficult academic review system and to make these regulations relevant to their own practices. This program will help those doing research in community settings to increase the ethical quality of community-based research (vis-à-vis existing regulations) AND to promote a culture shift where IRBs come to recognize the unique ethical qualities and challenges faced by community-engaged research. This training focuses on facilitating communication between community partners and both their academic partners and institutional review boards.
