Bioethics Consultations

Bioethics Consults

ITHS offers support and education to investigators by providing a forum for in-depth conversation and analysis of ethical issues in clinical and translational research.

Research bioethics consultants offer advice to researchers, research staff, personnel involved in protection of human subjects, and research participants who have questions about any aspect of a research study, and assist when there are ethical issues that could benefit from in-depth conversation and analysis related to the development, implementation, or analysis of clinical and translational research.

Consultant recommendations are advisory and are supplemental to the institutional review board’s (IRB) responsibility for research oversight. Consultations may range from a phone conversation to a face-to-face meeting, and usually result in a written report being created for the requestor’s use.
