PRIM&R Webinar: Social Media as a Research Recruitment Tool

Since its founding in 1974, Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research (PRIM&R) has pursued two core goals: creating a strong and vibrant community of ethics-minded research administration and oversight personnel, and providing educational and professional development opportunities that give that community the ongoing knowledge, support, and interaction it needs to raise the bar of research administration and oversight above regulatory compliance. This webinar joins a series aimed at delivering clear, comprehensive information on important topics in the fields of human subjects protections and animal care and use.

To date there has been no specific regulatory guidance on social media recruitment. In order to ensure that these potentially invaluable recruitment methods are utilized in ways that safeguard the rights and interests of possible subjects and social media users, IRBs need the right tools to evaluate their ethical and regulatory acceptability.

Using case studies from biomedical and social and behavioral research, this webinar will highlight pertinent ethical and practical considerations when evaluating the use of social media to recruit study subjects.
