The boundary between therapy and research may at times be difficult to distinguish, and it is, therefore, important for health care professionals to recognize when a clinical activity should be properly classified as research.
Research may be subject to federal regulations which require advance review and approval by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) in order to protect the rights and welfare of patients who serve as human subjects.
This paper will discuss the criteria health care professionals can use to distinguish between therapy, innovative therapy, and therapeutic or clinical research.
