Welcome to the Human Research Protections Program (HRPP). The HRPP is a centralized corporate-wide system to ensure the protection of the rights and welfare of subjects participating in research. All research programs administered through McLaren Health Care and its subsidiary hospitals are overseen by the centralized Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects participating in research.
The mission of the HRPP is to:
To safeguard and promote the health and welfare of human research subjects by ensuring that their rights, safety and well-being are protected;
To provide timely and high quality education, review and monitoring of human research projects; and
To facilitate excellence in human subjects research.
The program consists of research leadership, investigators and their research staff, and administration. The following units of the Human Research Protections Program include:
- MHC Institutional Review Board (a group of people who review research projects to ensure the protection of human subjects participating in research).
- Office of Research Education, Development, Training and Resources
- Office of Research Compliance and Quality Assurance
McLaren Healthcare has a corporate Federalwide Assurance (FWA) registered with the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS); on which each subsidiary hospital is listed as a component. The FWA identifies an institutional official who is responsible for the McLaren corporate HRPP.
The McLaren corporate HRPP is responsible for oversight of all research involving human subjects conducted within any of the McLaren Healthcare subsidiaries.
