Participatory Research & Research Ethics
Institutional Review Boards were
designed to protect the interests of individuals, but what about the
interests of communities? Our Community-Based Participatory Research
(CBPR) & Research Ethics Program seeks to address this issue
through training, technical resources, and open dialogues between
communities, academics, research ethics review boards, funders and
other key stakeholders. From January through June 2007, CCPH and
Tuskegee University's Bioethics Center hosted a 6-part educational conference call series on Institutional Review
Boards (IRBs) and Research Ethics, which was intended to increase
understanding of the role of IRBs and other mechanisms for assuring
that human subjects research is ethical and appropriate - both at
individual and community levels.
CCPH has established a Listserv on CBPR
& Research Ethics to further the dialogue on these issues.
