The DNP Project: Ethical Considerations
The discussion for this week is focused on preparation for your IRB application. What are the important considerations in the protection of human subjects and confidential information in your project? How will you assure an ethical and protective process for all involved in this project, including patients and other stakeholders?
Please give an update on your project status. Is IRB approval required for your project site? If so, have you started this process? If not, do you have a letter from the site stating that IRB is not required?
(The DNP project will be conducted as a case study, so it will not be implemented in a clinical site, and there is no need for a letter or permission, but there is a need for the university IRB committee’s approval.
