The Human Subjects Office has developed a Quality Improvement Program (QIP) to assess and respond to challenges with the administration, review, and conduct of human subjects research. The primary purpose of the QIP is to increase the quality, performance, and efficiency of UGA’s Human Subjects Protection Program (HRPP).
The QIP will include three components or stages: 1) Quality Assurance, 2) Quality Improvement, and 3) Continuous Quality Improvement. We are focused on finding ways we can become more effective at protecting subjects while also becoming more efficient. Our goal is an HRPP that is not only proactive, but also interactive, and emphasizes prevention of harm.
