Human Research Protections

The Human Research Protections Program at Presbyterian Healthcare Services (PHS)

Presbyterian Healthcare Services (PHS) has established a human research protections program which (in partnership with its research community) is responsible for ensuring the ethical and equi​table treatment of human subjects in research conducted under the auspices of PHS. Research under the auspices of the organization includes research conducted at PHS, conducted by or under the direction of any affiliated investigator (including students or residents) in connection with his or her organizational responsibilities, conducted by or under the direction of any approved unaffiliated investigator proposing to use any PHS property, facility, patient/employee population, or non-public information for research purposes

PHS fosters a research environment that promotes respect for the rights and welfare of individuals participating in research. In reviewing and conducting research, PHS adheres to the principles described in the Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (commonly known as the "Belmont Report") by the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects in Biomedical and Behavioral Research. In addition to upholding these principles, PHS research activities conform to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, as well as PHS organizational policy.

The PHS Human Research Protections Office is responsible for implementing and managing the human research protections program.
