Establishing a High Quality Human Research Protection Program (HRPP): the AAHRPP Model

At the turn of the 21st century, it became apparent that the most effective way to help ensure research participant safety and welfare was through an overarching human research protection program (HRPP) dedicated to that mission. AAHRPP accreditation provides an excellent model for achieving a robust HRPP. AAHRPP, Inc., founded by PRIM&R and six other research-focused organizations in 2001, is an international nonprofit organization that accredits high quality human subject protection programs. It provides peer-based, collaborative, collegial, and educational evaluations of HRPPs, based on applicable standards and elements. During this session, faculty and attendees will review the elements of a robust HRPP, review the process of achieving or maintaining AAHRPP accreditation, discuss AAHRPP’s approach to cutting edge issues in the human research enterprise, and become familiar with AAHRPP staff and web resources available to all wishing to maintain or achieve a overarching system of human research protections. 625
