The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) recently released a revised Common Rule, the Final Rule, which is the first major change to that set of regulations in more than 25 years. Human research protection professionals will be subject to following the Final Rule provisions starting on its effective date, January 19, 2018.
One key challenge in complying with the Final Rule will be operationalizing its requirements. Webinar attendees learned more about operational and business process implications of the Final Rule, including how to:
- Make the switch from the current rule to the Final Rule and best practices when working within both sets of rules
- Update procedures, review tools and electronic systems to accommodate new requirements
- Communicate new requirements and responsibilities to your staff, institutional officials and the research community to foster compliance with the new requirements
