Investigational Review Committee: Research

Focus on Research

Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and administrators, as well as bedside staff, are involved in leading and conducting research studies at Palomar Health. An important aspect of how research is conducted is the collaboration with academic organizations such as UCSD, USD, SDSU and CSUSM that close the gap between education and practice. The dissemination of research findings to the local or broader community is also a priority for health-care organizations. Quality Improvement and Evidence-Based Practice change projects are other aspects of health-care activities that are often reported outside of the organization. In order to ensure the protection of PHI, all QI, EBP and research projects that potentially could be reported outside Palomar Health must be evaluated by the IRC to determine the level of risk to the research participant.
