Consultation services for academic researchers and study team members regarding ethical issues that arise in preparation for and/or in the process of doing research with and in community. Community Engagement Consults are intended to supplement the traditional
Institutional Review Board approval process, especially when concerns regarding working in partnership with communities arise.
There are three types of consultation services offered through the CCTSI Community Consults and Ethics Committee (CCEC):
Consultation regarding a Plan for Community Consultation, as required by the COMIRB Policies and Procedures for the Protection of Human Subjects section 188.8.131.52 – Documents for Approval of the Emergency Research Exception from Informed Consent.
This policy states that “Before the community engagement plan is submitted to the IRB for review and approval it must first be reviewed and approved by the UCD Community Advisory Committee [the CCTSI Community Consult and Ethics Committee]
which is a subcommittee of the PACT Council for the CCTSI.”
Community Engagement Consult with the CCEC and relevant community and/or academic experts.
Individual consultations on community engagement in research activities with members of the PACT Council, CE&R Staff and/or Community Research Liaisons.
What should you expect?
Consultation sessions are led by the Partnership for Academicians and Communities in Translation (PACT) Community Consults and Ethics Committee (CCEC) – which is a community/university partnership. Additional content experts may be invited to support
the relevance of the session to the needs of the investigator.
Community Engagement Consults address research across the translational research spectrum (T1-T4 research) that addresses any/all stages of the research process.
