Why a blog?
Why am I posting a blog about HRPPs? Basically, to share my experience with human research protection programs more broadly. I often get asked for advice on HRPPs and, as a consultant, I give advice to my clients. Aside from occasional postings on the IRB Forum, this advice only goes to a small number of people. After reading about blogs and how, with a minimal amount of effort, information can be shared broadly, it seemed like a good way to reach more people. So, here I am with a blog on HRPPs. Whenever I get asked for advice, I will try and post my response here. I will also, from time to time, post general thoughts or comments on HRPPs here. Please feel free to comment - I don't have all of the answers!
