Research Compliance Fundamentals

June 24, 2021

Community Health Centers (CHC) operate in an incredibly complex regulatory environment even without the addition of research operations.  The pandemic brought increased federal research funding and risks of audit and government oversight related to research compliance. At the Health Care Compliance Association’s 2020 Healthcare Enforcement Conference, a Department of Justice leader vowed to keep research compliance among the top of priorities for enforcement.  Similarly, the Office of Inspector General views research grants awarded during the pandemic as a particularly sensitive area for oversight. 

In this webinar, we will address the fundamentals of any research compliance program, including:

  • Human Subject Protections
  • Research Integrity
  • Conflicts of Interest

Note:  The webinar will not address all potential topics within research compliance in depth, e.g., FDA regulations, clinical trials, reliance agreements subawards, or post-award federal research grant compliance. 


Please note: This webinar is offered as a complementary product to all Health Center Compliance Premium Plan Subscribers. For more information on our Premium Plan, click here or Contact Us.

The On-Demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase after the conclusion of the live webinar.
