Full course description
Participants will become familiar with federal regulations, professional standards and University policies regarding research integrity and responsibilities, ethics and compliance obligations, and conflict of interest issues. A case history review, procedures for suspected abuse, potential sanctions for noncompliance, and instructions on completing a Disclosure Form will be discussed. The proper conduct and reporting of research is of paramount importance at the University of Utah as noncompliance can result in severe penalties to the institution, the individual(s), and their reputations. Continued education and heightened awareness of ethical issues contributes to fostering a "culture of compliance" throughout the University research community.
