This practical lecture addresses "Full Review Protocols" - those of more than minimal risk which must be considered at a convened meeting of the IRB. It provides practical advice for those preparing protocols for IRB review. What is the IRB; how does it work; what is the best way to interact with it? Understand common pitfalls and errors in submissions and how to avoid them. Find out exactly what the IRB needs to review your study, and how to best and most effectively present your scientific, ethical, and logistical information to the IRB.

This lecture is designed for new research fellows and professional staff, research nurses and study coordinators submitting materials to the IRB.
