Description:Through a collection of case studies studies, attendees will identify, examine, and explore IRB strategies to address and mitigate SBER risk based on IRB review criteria such as: study procedures, population, risk/benefit, harm, confidentiality, etc. The cases raise important and difficult ethical issues connected with planning, reviewing, or conducting SBER. During this session, faculty will: Review how research that does not necessarily pose risk of physical harm can pose other harms (e.g., psycho‐social, legal, psychological, data protection) and how this can challenge researchers and IRBs with respect to how they identify and assess risk, Identify and examine the ethical and practical issues surrounding risk to subjects when designing and implementing SBER protocols’, and Explore IRB and researcher strategies to identify, assess, mitigate, and manage SBER risks.
