Event Summary 

Join us for a roundtable discussion on research ethics harmonization!

Research ethic review board (REB) harmonization efforts have been underway in several jurisdictions across Canada for the last few decades. From the collaborative approaches of British Columbia and Saskatchewan to the centralized methods of Manitoba and Nova Scotia, each province has approached the process in a different way.

The benefits of harmonization include a more transparent, simplified, streamlined, and rapid review process for applicants and reviewers, that removes bureaucratic obstacles to approving important health research projects.

This webinar will provide an opportunity for REBs and other interested parties to learn about the driving forces behind harmonization, the different approaches being implemented and the challenges and successes of harmonization initiatives across jurisdictions.
