Responsible Conduct of Research Training Summary

As part of the registration process for the All of Us Researcher Workbench, researchers are required to complete the Responsible Conduct of Research Training before accessing Registered Tier data. Responsible Conduct of Research Training is required for authorized data users in order to educate them on conducting responsible and ethical research with data from All of Us participants. This training should take between 45-60 minutes for researchers to complete. Furthermore, before accessing the Controlled Tier dataset, users will be required to complete an additional Responsible Conduct of Research training. In order to maintain their access to the Researcher Workbench, users are required to retake the Responsible Conduct of Research training each year.

The Responsible Conduct of Research Training is divided into 6 sections. Part 1 provides an introduction to the All of Us Research Program, All of Us core values, and what it means to become an All of Us Researcher. Part 2 discusses the principles of conducting ethical research with human participants and how they apply to All of Us authorized users. Part 3 focuses on diversity in research, specifically how All of Us defines diversity, the importance of diversity in research, and challenges to meaningful inclusion. Part 4 reviews the definition of stigma, the process by which stigma is produced, how research can promote stigma, and ways All of Us users can help to prevent stigmatizing research. Part 5 explains data access and use of the Researcher Workbench, what you can do with a data passport and how to maintain it, the rules of the Data User Code of Conduct for authorized users, and the responsibilities of the Resource Access Board. The Responsible Conduct of Research Training concludes with part 6, which focuses on how participant privacy is protected and All of Us data is kept secure.
