Veterans Affairs: Research - VA Program That Boosts Safeguards for Research Participants Wins Approval from Accrediting Body

“The new accreditation gives Veterans who take part in VA studies reassurance of the protections they are afforded,” said Dr. Joel Kupersmith, VA’s chief research and development officer. “Veterans who volunteer for VA research can expect the highest level of protection.”

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Human Research Protection Program (HRPP), which helps ensure high ethical and scientific standards for multi-site research projects involving Veterans or their health information, has been accredited by the nonprofit Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP).
