During this 15 minute webinar on Scenario Planning, you will learn how to apply this tool to your future plans. Scenario Planning was developed by Shell Oil in the 1970’s and has been shown to be effective when the future is unlikely to be similar to the past. We focus on how to use Scenario Planning with your IRB team. You will also see how this can be useful in other contexts.
IRBs are prone to mission creep and mis-interpretation of the federal regulations. This webinar focuses on IRB practices in reviewing social science types of research projects. This webinar will guide participants through the application of the regulatory definitions of research and human subjects and minimal risk, the exemption categories, as well as discuss issues of scientific design in relation to risks and benefits. The webinar will also discuss informed consent and the conditions for waiver of informed consent. Our goal is to establish clear boundaries for IRB authority and explore reasons why IRBs often exceed them.
Apply the regulatory language that determines if IRB review is required, and if so, at what level.
Apply an understanding of the role scientific design plays in review of minimal risk research.
