OHRE: Transmission of Sensitive Information Standard Information Session

Mon. 26 Oct, 2020 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Office for Human Research Ethics (OHRE) has been working with UNC Information Technology Services (ITS), ITS Policy Office, Privacy Office, Office of Clinical Trials (OCT), and IT-School of Medicine (SOM), regarding the upcoming revision to the “Transmission of Sensitive Information” standard and how this will affect human subject research. Although the standard is broader than communication with research subjects, it is inclusive of them as well. This revision will allow for an exception to the current process to permit texting or email with an individual through an exception process that involves obtaining the individual’s consent for certain types of messages.

The standard is set to be released on October 26. In preparation, updates are being made to IRBIS, consent templates, SOP’s and a FAQ is being completed. OHRE is also hosting an information session where presenters will review the standard FAQ and answer questions those in attendance may have.

Dennis Schmidt, Associate Vice Chancellor for Institutional Privacy and CISO

Kim Stahl, Senior Policy and Process Lead, ITS Policy Office

Brian Penders, Chief Information Security Officer, IT-SOM

MURAL Series: Translating Research Instruments

Thu. 29 Oct, 2020 10:00 am - 11:30 am

MURAL Multilingual Research Capacity Building Lecture Series - Translating Research Instruments: Is the Forward-Back Approach Enough?

Including non-English speaking participants in research requires us to translate our instruments. How we translate these tools can influence our results.

Join the Multilingual Research Advancement for Health (MURAL) program and Michaela DuBay, PhD, CCC-SLP, for the second edition of the Fall 2020 MURAL Multilingual Research Capacity Building Lecture Series. We will discuss a cultural adaptation approach to translation using a parent-report autism screening tool as a test case. We’ll describe how we translated and adapted this tool for a US-Based Spanish-speaking population, including fostering community collaborations to ensure an appropriate translation was developed. We’ll also highlight specific areas found to be particularly ripe for cultural adaptation and provide specific recommendations for researchers interested in translating their own tools.
