Another CDRN, Mid-South received full Intuitional Review Board (IRB) approval to conduct the ADAPTABLE study. Before a research study starts enrolling participants, the protocol (study plan) needs to be reviewed by someone not connected to the research to be sure it is ethical, provides potential benefits, and does not cause unnecessary harm to participants. This review is done by a IRB. An IRB is an independent group of professionals designated to review and approve the clinical protocol, informed consent forms, study advertisements, and patient brochures, to ensure that the study is safe and effective for human participation.
