Research Requirements

Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The government has strict guidelines and safeguards in place to protect people who volunteer to participate in a clinical trial. In the United States, each clinical trial must be approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to ensure the risks to the study participants are as low as possible. At Dignity Health all human subjects research activity must be reviewed by a Dignity Health internal IRB or an external IRB approved by Dignity Health.
