FDA Series – Using Medical Devices in Human Subjects Research

Mon, 10th August, 2020

Although OHRP and FDA regulations are similar, differences exist based on FDA’s unique scope and requirements. The Office of Responsible Research Practices and the Center for Clinical and Translational Science are offering an FDA series. This second session will focus on research involving medical devices and the special considerations associated with obtaining IRB approval. By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain common regulatory terms in the context of FDA-regulated device studies
  • Differentiate between clinical investigations requiring Investigational Device Exemptions (IDEs), Nonsignificant Risk (NSR) device investigations, and IDE-exempt investigations
  • Identify and complete Buck-IRB application sections and documents required for medical device research
  • Recognize how and when to consult the FDA

Please note, this intermediate-level webinar assumes a basic familiarity with the IRB approval process and Buck-IRB, and will not cover emergency use, expanded access, or Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) protocols. While the session will be tailored to medical researchers and research staff, anyone preparing IRB submissions is welcome. The workshop will be held on Thursday, November 17th, from 9 to 11:00 a.m. via CarmenZoom.

Wed, 11th September, 2019

The Office of Responsible Research Practices, Office of the Chief Information Officer, and the Center for Clinical and Translational Science are sponsoring a viewing session for the Office for Human Research Protections’ exploratory workshop on topics related to human subjects research and privacy considerations involving the secondary analysis of health data.

Agenda

Session I: Is Privacy a Casualty of Advancing Research?

The goals of this session are to explore the problem of privacy protection in a data-rich world, the tensions that exist between the societal good that could come from big data research and the real and perceived risks to individuals, and the public’s perspectives about broad data sharing.

Session II: Approaches to Protecting Privacy & Confidentiality

The goal of this session is to explore the challenges of privacy protection for health-related big data research conducted on a variety of platforms and in various settings.

Session III: Protecting Privacy & Confidentiality: A Shared Responsibility

The goals of this session are to discuss some of the challenges facing IRBs and institutions in the review of proposed data sharing options for research that falls under the Common Rule, and explore ethical oversight of big data research that falls outside the scope of the Common Rule.

The viewing session will be held on Thursday,September 19from 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. in Room 200,Prior Health Sciences Library, 376 West Tenth Avenue. A working lunch will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss privacy implications and future strategies at Ohio State.
