AHA Calls for Comments on Training
At AHA Today, the American Historical Association's blog, Rob Townsend calls for responses to OHRP's recent invitation to comment on training for IRBs. As Townsend notes, the very phrasing of OHRP's questions suggest a continued inability to remember that the office's policies have effects beyond medical research. On the other hand, he notes, some kind of training mandate is likely, so it would be best for historians not to remain silent.
