Walden University Institutional Review Board Application Discussion

Institutional Review Board Application

As mentioned in Week 2, the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Walden University and at other institutions, is the entity that approves and reviews all medical and behavioral research involving humans. IRBs are required in the United States by the federal government to ensure the ethical treatment of experiment subjects. The history of research ethics, in the United States and abroad, is marred by instances of researchers acting unethically (e.g., the Tuskegee syphilis experiment); thus, protections are now in place to protect participants from harm.

For your dissertation research, you will be required to gain approval through the Walden IRB. In an effort to familiarize you with the IRB application and process, you are asked to complete the IRB application for the research study you are proposing for your Final Project and submit it to your Instructor (not to the IRB).

The Assignment (5- to 7-page paper):

  • Complete the Walden IRB Application for your Survey Research Proposal. The IRB Application is located in this week’s Learning Resources. (Note: Entire form must be completed).
  • Submit the completed form to the Instructor by Day 7 (not to the IRB).

Support your Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.
