Chapter Information
Description This regulation establishes protocols to approve research proposals involving customers of the department, Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center, any Employment Services Organizations (sheltered workshops) or Centers for Independent Living as mandated by State and Federal law. These protocols will ensure the adequate safeguards for the rights and welfare of human participants and will ensure that such safeguards are consistent with the federal requirements and state law as described in Section 32.1-162 et. seq. of the Code of Virginia. The regulation establishes a human research review committee to implement these protocols. Researchers will be required to divulge their research plans to a committee in order to obtain approval for the research. Human participants will be provided with information regarding the action and known consequences of the research. Thus, no participant will be subjected to research against his will.
