IRB Brown Bag Session: 'Recruitment of Subjects for Research'

Thursday, 16 November, 2017

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) will hold its next Brown Bag session from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 pm., Thursday, Nov. 16, online. Log-in instructions will be emailed to participants upon RSVP.

The session, "Recruitment of Subjects for Research," is an intermediate course covering the requirements for recruiting subjects for research, strategies for recruitment, available resources for study teams, and other recruitment-related topics including rules, permissions and completing the IRB application’s recruitment questions.

Recruitment materials that are seen or heard by prospective subjects to invited study participation are considered part of the informed consent process and must have IRB approval prior to their use. The IRB requires sufficient details in the description of recruitment plans and that all materials be attached to a researcher’s IRB application. Outside of the application, recruitment strategies may sometimes prove to be a logistically difficult part of conducting the research, especially when targeting outside organizations, groups, or entities.

One CNE credit will be offered for this session. This education session is co-provided with SLU School of Nursing.

Because this session is online attendees who are interested in obtaining CNE credit will have to complete a session evaluation and post-quiz.

The IRB’s Brown Bag series is designed to provide the SLU research community with in-depth understanding and discussion concerning the latest policies, procedures, and requirements pertaining to human subjects research.

Brown Bag sessions are for SLU research professionals and coordinators, and any student, staff, or faculty member who is looking for continuing IRB education.

For questions or to RSVP, please contact Rachel Millinger or call 314-977-9813.
