While public health research is subject to the same rigorous scientific and ethical standards as other human subjects research, both the unique features and legislative mandates of public health require special treatment. The conduct of research activities is a major mission of public health professionals, as many of the usual functions performed in routine practice involve surveillance, assessment, or process improvement. It is also important to understand the overlap between public health practice and research.
This course supplements the foundational training provided in a basic Human Subjects Research (HSR) course (either Biomedical or Social-Behavioral-Educational). Organizations may also add the modules in this course to their basic HSR courses to provide learners with focused public health research training.
