Hello all, and welcome to my first posting here at PsychSplash! I hope to continue on the road that Dr. Gareth paved so well. My first inclusion in to the land of PsychSplash involves Human Research Subjects Training. As a Ph.D. Student who is almost finished with his proposal, I am working on the IRB as well, and this can be a daunting task sometimes to keep the principles of the human research participant combined with my own wanting to get the proposal done. To that end, I have found in my research the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative, which helps keeps participants up-to-date on IRB and research training.
Human Research Subjects Training
The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) allows researchers to take these courses:
Basic Courses in the Protection of Human Research Subjects.
Social and Behavioral Focus.
Good Clinical Practice Course.
Health Information Privacy and Security Course (HIPS)
Laboratory Animal Welfare Courses for investigators and IACUC Members
Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR).
By also allowing a researcher to become a better researcher, CITI also helps the researcher to keep up-to-date on IRB processes.
