What Makes CIRTification Unique?
CIRTification is tailored to the unique roles of community research partners. Ideally, this training program will not only teach community research partners about the importance of protecting research participants but also enhance the overall contribution that they are able to make to their respective research teams towards the goal of becoming co-researchers.
This program was designed to substitute for (or supplement) the standard human research protection training required by many institutions.
- considers community partners' limited research experience
- is interactive
- addresses ethical issues in plain language
- uses real-world examples
- focuses on the application of new knowledge
