CPED Webinar

Improvement Science IRB 

Date: Wednesday, September 28, 2022

Time: 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

As faculty redesigned our doctoral program, aligning with the CPED principles, we quickly realized the current IRB application would no longer be applicable. Faculty worked with the Chair of the Institutional Review Board to develop a new improvement science IRB application specifically incorporating the stages of the design thinking process. The new application will be shared along with the newly designed Improvement Science Research Brief and process of development within the redesigned program structure.
