Institutional Review Board

All research protocols conducted at Providence Medical Research Center in Spokane have oversight by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB is a 20-member board of technical experts, administrators, lay people and clergy who meet monthly to review research projects involving human subjects and ensure:

  • Safety and rights of participating patients are maintained.
  • Risks to participants are minimized.
  • Risks to participants are justified in relation to anticipated benefits
  • The selection of participants is equitable; and
  • Participants are informed of all procedures, costs, risks and benefits of participating in a research study.
