Research with Justice-Involved Populations: Understanding OHRP Regulations and Protections Under Subpart C


Justice-involved individuals, including those who are incarcerated or on probation, present unique ethical considerations and challenges in research settings. This webinar offers guidance for conducting research with justice-involved populations while adhering to the regulations and protections outlined by the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP).

OHRP regulations serve as a cornerstone in ensuring the ethical treatment of human subjects in research conducted or supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). These regulations, codified in Title 45, Part 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), establish fundamental principles and guidelines for research involving participants.

This webinar aims to promote responsible and respectful research practices by providing practical guidance and insights while advancing knowledge and understanding of OHRP regulations, emphasizing the importance of minimizing risks to individuals, ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of their data, and providing additional protections for justice-involved populations.
