A COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE FOR RESEARCHERS

We acknowledge that we are living in uncertain times. Above all, we send wishes for the continued safety and health of our colleagues and communities.

 

Recognizing that the situation and response to COVID-19 are changing rapidly, the HCSRN has partnered with AcademyHealth to provide a forum for our communities to directly learn from each other and share information to inform your response to the coronavirus pandemic, with a particular focus on the data, evidence, and information needs of those working in health systems.

 

In April 2020, we co-created a community of practice, open to anyone. It has featured weekly webinars related to COVID-19 research, and served as a forum for discussion, document sharing, and identification of key data-related challenges.

 

RESEARCH FUNDING 

The National Institutes of Health has developed up-to-date guidance pertaining to coronavirus disease research, including measures affecting currently funded grants, and specific funding opportunities. 

 

RESEARCH OVERSIGHT AND IRBs

Many questions have arisen regarding protection of research participants, and the impact of COVID-19 on ongoing studies. The Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) has produced this compilation of frequently asked questions, which may be helpful to researchers and IRBs.
