Alert: IRB Advisor now awards AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and nursing contact hours, but please be aware that the January, February, and March 2018 issues do not offer those particular credits. Subscribers can still earn credits from more current issues or by rereading past issues that offer credit and taking the online test with a passing score.
Each month, IRB Advisor addresses the topics that affect you most, including current regulatory activities, informed consent, and administrative and management issues. Each peer-reviewed issue is meticulously written with objective and unbiased coverage bringing you case studies, expert analysis, and practical advice in a concise, easy-to-read format.
IRB Advisor provides you with comprehensive, practical, and authoritative information that will help you find and follow best practices, stay in step with new regulatory guidance, and keep current on hot topics in the HRP world. IRB members, administrators, and staff can benefit from expert analysis and practical advice on IRB topics in each issue.

The Concordia University IRB has found IRB Advisor to be an extremely valuable resource, and it is an integral component of our continuing education program. We review the current issue at each meeting. As a smaller institution that conducts human subject research, having ready access to the thoughts and actions of compliance professionals is important. Learning about changes to research regulations, ramifications of decisions other IRBs have made, and potential pitfalls to avoid based on experiences of other IRBs has enabled us to become a better IRB. Thank you IRB Advisor!
