ICH Releases Youth-Appropriate Human Subjects Research Training Toolkit
By Sarah Trieweiler
Led by Research Associate Nazmim Bhuiya, ICH has just released a new youth-appropriate training toolkit on the ethical conduct of research with human subjects.
The training tool is composed of several key content areas: overview of the concept of ‘ethics,’ historical summary of select ethically flawed human participants research, guidelines of the Belmont Report, and regulations that an IRB must follow when reviewing proposed research, and includes interactive scenarios to facilitate discussion. Additionally, it is accompanied by a Facilitator’s Guide containing instructions and a brief assessment designed to assess youth understanding of, and comfort with, the training content.
ICH hopes this training will be particularly beneficial for youth who are engaged as study team members but have a limited background in research.
