Institutional Review Board
St. Philomena’s Hospital has an Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB ensures that the rights and well-being of patients are adequately protected.
The Institutional Review Board is charged with reviewing all studies involving patients for compliance with both St. Philomena’s Institutional policies and with National, state, and local laws. The IRB also ensures that all studies comply with the ethical principles such as respect for people, beneficence and justice.
In general, an institutional review board is a committee charged by the Govt. of India with protecting the rights and welfare of patients.
