Integritas Consulting Services are tailored to meet an organization's particular research ethics/integrity policy, education and compliance needs.
Program Offerings include:
Integritas Consulting provides institutional assessments, which examine an organization's existing ethics compliance infra-structure such as codes of ethical conduct and the conduct declarations and assurances in corporate mission statements, employee contracts, and clinical trial promotional materials. Included in the institutional assessment report are policy and program recommendations for improvement of an organization's research ethics governance programs.
Integritas Consulting provides senior management and Research Ethics Boards with research ethics policy assessment, development, and guidance on institutional accountability to Canadian and US Federal directives and regulations. These include policy statements on individual and institutional conflicts of interest, a diverse event reporting, ethics violation reporting and verification, whistleblower protection and privacy rules.
