Protecting patients in research: BCDiabetes receives prestigious accreditation for its research program

Announcements,Research

 

In December, our research team at BCDiabetes received the welcome news that our Human Research Protection Program (HRPP), established in 2017, has been accredited by the Association of Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP).

Receiving accreditation of our HRPP is a milestone for our research team, strengthening the connection of our research work to our mandate to improve health outcomes for British Columbians living with diabetes.

What does this mean for our patients? It means BCDiabetes places your health, safety, rights and welfare as the highest priority throughout the course of your involvement in research — and we’ve worked with an external organization to make sure our walk is matching our talk.

Our research is always reviewed by third party ethics committees to make sure we are as transparent as possible about the benefits and risks to prospective participants in our studies. And for our partners in diabetes care, we look forward to working with you to continuously improve and learn from our work with you, to advance the science and best practice on treating diabetes.
