Promoting Evidence-Informed Consent Practices: Focus Groups with IRB Directors, Chairs, or Delegates

Does your IRB review biomedical clinical trials? If so, we are NIH-funded researchers at Washington University in St. Louis who want to hear your perspectives on informed consent practices. We are conducting focus groups with IRB directors, chairs, or delegates in the US.

Here is more information about this project:

  • Focus groups will be confidential and will take place via Zoom.
  • Focus groups will take approximately 75 minutes of your time.
  • If selected for a focus group, you will be paid $100.
  • This project has been approved as Exempt by the Washington University IRB.
