What does the Community Human Subjects' Protection Team do?
The Community Human Subjects' Protection Team assists OHSU researchers, community researchers and community organizations to assure their research and program evaluation projects protect human subjects from initiation to evaluation and final analyses. The Community Research Navigator advises community research teams around the important topic of human subjects' protection...specifically related to community-based and community-run projects.
Community Human Subjects' Protection Successes
Our team has successfully collaborated with the OHSU Research Integrity office (IRB Chair as well as the VP of Research Integrity) to implement more community-friendly processes for external colleagues in support of their community research. If you are working with a non-OHSU researcher, please have them follow the steps posted on this OHSU Research Integrity webpage. https://www.ohsu.edu/research-integrity/non-ohsu-research-collaborators
We also recommend following the prompts found as comments in this Request for Determination form as you submit your community-based and community-run projects for review.
We have assisted OHSU researchers, community researchers and community organizations to assure their research and program evaluation projects protect human subjects from initiation to evaluation and final analyses. Additional questions or queries about community-friendly processes or supports can be directed to Paige Farris (via the centralized/ firstname.lastname@example.org address). Topical questions might include:
- How to train an organization about the protection of human subjects in support of a proposed project and its goals.
- Which helpful OHSU IRB processes should I use?
- I'm interested in referrals to additional internal and external resources in support of my research.
