    should not expect to have proposals reviewed by the HSC during finals week holidays or quarter breaks Subject recruitment and data collection should not be initiated prior to obtaining approval from the Human Subjects Committee The Committee reserves the option of withdrawing approval of a project if circumstances warrant for example if the research procedures are found to produce greater risk of harm than previously anticipated The researcher must promptly report to the HSC Chair or the Dean of Research any alterations in their materials or procedures not addressed in their initial submission materials as well as any unforeseen problems or complaints regarding the research project Following the review of the researcher s materials the Committee may approve the project deny approval or request specific clarifications or changes in order for the project to fully comply with ethical guidelines If clarifications or changes have been recommended once the Committee receives written verification from the researcher that the clarifications or changes have been made approval will be granted Proposals may only be denied by a majority vote of a quorum of the full Committee A quorum is defined as a majority of the total membership More specifically if an expedited review committee does not approve a project the researcher will be notified and unless the researcher chooses to withdraw the proposal it will then be reviewed and voted on by the full committee A researcher is welcome to submit additional information to clarify the planned research practices at any point during the review process and may request to meet with the HSC Chair the Dean or the Committee to discuss the decision on the research proposal Back to top Overview of the Ethical Principles Cal Poly s ethical guidelines for the use of human subjects in research are based on the principles and procedures outlined in the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects and the Office of Human Research Protections OHRP Institutional Review Board IRB Guidance The OHRP IRB Guidebook provides a detailed interpretation and discussion of the Federal Policy guidelines The Federal Policy provides a common policy to be implemented across a broad spectrum of federal agencies including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration the Environmental Protection Agency the Consumer Product Safety Commission the National Science Foundation and the Departments of Agriculture Energy Education Justice Defense Housing and Urban Development and Health and Human Services Cal Poly s policy is similarly intended to apply to the range of disciplines represented on campus while at the same time acknowledging the value of the ethical guidelines of individual disciplines professional associations e g the American Medical Association the American Psychological Association the American College of Sports Medicine the American Association on Mental Deficiencies Should a specific circumstance not be fully addressed by the Cal Poly policy the Federal Policy and the OHRP IRB Guidebook will provide the guidelines for the Committee s decision making The Federal Policy will be the primary reference for the review of federally funded research The Federal Policy and Cal Poly s guidelines draw heavily on the three basic ethical principles laid out in the Belmont Report a 1979 report of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research These three basic principles are respect for persons beneficence and justice Respect for persons entails treating individuals as autonomous agents who enter into research voluntarily and with adequate information i e informed consent Those with diminished autonomy such as children prisoners and individuals who are in some way incapacitated have a right to be protected The second basic principle beneficence refers to the obligation to secure the well being of research subjects Possible benefits should be maximized while possible harms should be minimized The final principle explicated in the Belmont Report is that of justice Justice implies that both risks and benefits of research should be distributed equally across various groups For example the burden of serving in research should not largely fall on certain groups such as the poor or the imprisoned while others primarily benefit from the knowledge gained from the research Copies of the Belmont Report the Federal Policy and the OHRP IRB Guidebook are available in the Office of the Dean of Research Bldg 38 Rm 154 805 756 1508 Back to top Specific Ethical Criteria Consistent with the principles outlined in the Belmont Report the Federal Policy and the OHRP IRB Guidebook the following criteria will be used to evaluate research proposals at Cal Poly Risks to subjects are minimized Exposure of subjects to unnecessary risks is avoided and precautions safeguards and alternatives are utilized to reduce the probability of harm and limit its severity or duration An example of an appropriate safeguard is the presence of medically trained personnel during the administration of physical endurance tests While a degree of risk may be unavoidable in some research the risks that are present must be reasonable in relation to anticipated benefits of the research including possible direct benefits to the subjects and the general benefits of the knowledge that may be gained from the research An adequate research design is implemented to ensure that the results will be meaningful and therefore of potential benefit to increasing knowledge Regarding studies of the direct benefit to subjects of an intervention or treatment method investigators should offer the treatment or intervention to members of control groups if and when it has been found to produce beneficial results Similarly members of groups receiving alternative treatments that are determined to be less effective should be offered the more beneficial treatment as well The risks that must be identified and addressed include a physical harm e g pain discomfort injury side effects of drugs dizziness b psychological harm e g stress guilt depression loss of self esteem confusion embarrassment c social harm e g the possible stigmatizing effects of diagnostic labels such as delinquent or schizophrenic and d economic harm e g threats to employment if a subject s involvement in research
