San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care (SDHPC) maintains an independent Institutional Review Board (IRB) to support research and ensure that the vulnerable population of patients near the end of life are protected.
 About CPS
    Faculty / Staff

The SDHPC IRB was constituted in 1989 (at the same time that CPS was established).

Policies and procedures have been implemented to ensure that the IRB complies with widely-accepted federal research standards , and has strong representation from the community.

It meets monthly to evaluate new studies, supervise ongoing research, and educate its members and new researchers.
