Axiom Mentor will host a 60 minute webinar: Use and Abuse of IRB.  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.

There are two sessions scheduled:

  • Wednesday, October 30 at 1PM EST
  • Tuesday, December 3 at 3PM EST
