Research Ethics Action Collaborative for HRPPs (REACH) webinar - The Multi-Regional Clinical Trials Center of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard

March 7, 2024 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm


Introducing Research Ethics Action Collaborative for HRPPs (REACH), an initiative spearheaded by the MRCT Center, AAHRPP, PRIM&R, and Mass General Brigham. This effort aims to curate, align, and disseminate tools to advance access to and inclusion in research—for all potential participants–tailored for Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), Human Research Protection Programs (HRPPs), and the broader community. 

We invite you to join an engaging webinar scheduled for Thursday, March 7 from 12 – 1:00 PM ET. This interactive session will explain the motivation behind this effort and explore actionable strategies to operationalize inclusion efforts in HRPPs. 

The key discussion points include: 

  • Making the Case for Leadership: Understand the significance of integrating inclusion and accessibility within HRPPs and explore effective ways to articulate a compelling case that resonates with stakeholders and leadership. 
  • Establishing a Roadmap for Change: Delve into the process of creating a roadmap for change, navigating institutional processes, and garnering leadership buy-in to ensure a sustainable and impactful implementation of inclusion in HRPPs. 
  • Presenting Resources: Explore resources available to IRBs, HRPPs, and institutions currently freely available, and provide a means for attendees to identify additional tools needed for this work. 
  • Soliciting Examples: Hear from participants about successful practices and strategies implemented within their respective institutions, fostering a dynamic exchange of insights and best practices. 

Join us in this collective endeavor to actively strategize and operationalize efforts within IRBs and HRPPs.
