The Importance of Research
The Office of Research Participant Advocacy (RPA) was established to serve as a voice for research participants. Our office is dedicated to supporting volunteers in research and those considering taking take part in it. Our goal is to provide volunteers an additional resource to enhance their research participation experience.
We also serve as a resource for researchers. Some of our services include our language access program for non-English speaking participants, support and consultation on recruitment plans and how to optimize the consent processes. The RPA Office is available to conduct trainings with research teams from Good Clinical Practice (GCP) to how to work with interpreters.
