Human Research Protection and Understanding the Landscape of AAHRPP Accreditation

February 20, 2013 | ARCHIVE NOW AVAILABLE

Protecting research subjects and ensuring the quality of research remain top priorities for sponsors, IRBs, and investigative sites. AAHRPP accreditation is one way that investigative sites and IRBs can demonstrate to sponsors and the public that they maintain high quality in conducting or reviewing research. AAHRPP accreditation is a transformative process that helps investigative sites and IRBs infuse quality measures and outcomes into all aspects of their operation.

In this webinar, Dr. Speers will describe the AAHRPP accreditation process, the value of accreditation and why sites and IRBs should seek accreditation, and demonstrate that research protection and quality are responsibilities of those at the highest level at the site.

Finally, Dr. Speers will discuss that the AAHRPP accreditation is the right and smart thing to do to improve business while protecting subjects and producing high-quality data.
