NIH Training

I learned several things I never knew about conducting research and the liability of it that I never realized before. I never knew about the specific rules that HHS has for certain groups of people (i.e. pregnant, prisoners, and children). I had already assumed there were certain rules concerning children because obviously they are not always capable of making correct decisions for themselves.

I understand why we did this training because this is a research class and we will be using people to gather our research for our project. I didn’t understand why this specific training was given. To me, this training focused more on medical research than anything else. In public relations, I don’t think that I will ever be researching using medical trials. I hope not anyway. This training did not take as long as I expected and the quizzes were pretty easy if you went through the section that it involved. I did learn a lot of new things that I never knew before so I think that it was a good assignment. It also helped me realize the liabilities and risk that we take when conducting research, even when not conducting medical research.
