The mission of the Research Compliance Program (RCP) at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is:
The RCP achieves this mission primarily through supporting the other program areas within ORCRA by providing the necessary and independent internal compliance auditing and investigation functions. The RCP also collaborates closely with ORCRA’s Research Education Program to identify and facilitate many of the institution’s research-related education and training needs.
The Research Compliance Program consists of auditing and QA oversight for the following functional areas:
Audits are performed on studies of research involving human participants. Audits serve two primary functions: (1) to provide support to investigators in the process of research and (2) to identify difficulties with the conduct of research at the earliest possible moment to proactively institute individual and system level changes to ensure that all human subjects research is conducted to the highest ethical standards and in compliance with all applicable federal, state and institutional requirements.
How are studies chosen for audit?
