Discussion Board Week 10

This week, in Chapter 10, we are talking about research design. The role of the Institutional Review Board plays a very big role in safeguarding the health and safety of the research subjects/participants. 

Go to ONE the following websites and let me know what you’ve learned and what questions you still have. If you find a research study where someone was injured and sued, bring that to our board as well. If you want to look at them all, that’s fine too 🙂
