Human Research Protection Program
ProHealth Care's Human Research Protection Program protects the rights and welfare of individuals involved in human research that is conducted or overseen by ProHealth Care.
All human research at ProHealth Care is also reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB includes medical experts, scientists, and people from our local community. They review human research to make sure it is well-planned and ethical. The IRB serves to protect the rights and welfare of patients before and during the research study. The IRB also reviews each research study while it is going on to make sure research volunteers are protected.
