The use of technologically interconnected products and services continues to revolutionize the design and conduct of human subjects research. From smartphones and smartwatches, tablets, fitness trackers, to virtual assistants, and even smart medical devices, these technological innovations raise important legal, regulatory, and ethical questions for IRBs.
In order to adequately address these emerging issues, ensure protection of human subjects, and accurately apply the regulatory criteria for approval, IRBs should incorporate Information Technology (IT) expertise throughout their work. This webinar reviews the critical intersection between IRBs and IT and can help equip IRBs in managing the need for IT expertise on their boards.
