AbstractThe article discusses institutional review boards (IRBs), which are groups that review health research, and the ethically challenging research protocols they review, such as informed consent. Topics include an interview study of IRB chairpersons who review mental health research that were asked to rate the helpfulness of specific resources in helping them achieve their goals of protecting research participants.
