This session aims to foster dialogue with the research ethics community on policy and practice regarding the new alternative ethics review model for multi-jurisdictional minimal risk research.

This will be followed by three panelists who will share their perspectives and practical experiences in applying the single REB review model outlined in the TCPS. Discussions will focus on the streamlining process, the challenges that may arise and solutions to address them, as well as any additional recommendations panelists may have that could help benefit the research ethics community in applying the single REB review model.
