Research Clinic Video

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) and the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) have released a web-based, interactive training video entitled The Research Clinic. The video aims to educate clinical and social researchers and their staffs on the importance of appropriately protecting research subjects and avoiding research misconduct. The Research Clinic allows the viewer to assume the role of one of four characters and determines the outcome of the storyline by selecting decision-making choices for each “playable” character. Each year, research institutions report to OHRP up to 400 incidents of serious non-compliance with the regulations for protecting research subjects. These incidents include enrolling ineligible subjects who may be harmed by research interventions, failing to obtain or appropriately document informed consent, and conducting research without IRB review and approval.
