ARECCI helps practitioners, agencies and organizations identify and mitigate ethical risks in program evaluations, quality improvement projects, needs assessments, health innovations and knowledge translation.

People assume that research studies pose ethical risks, but may not make the same assumption about quality improvement, program evaluation, needs assessment, and knowledge translation projects. However, the risks in these projects can be the same as those in research. The ARECCI framework helps project leads and teams address and mitigate these risks.

ARECCI created the following tools and resources:

  • Online decision-support tools
  • Training opportunities
  • A Second Opinion Review process for projects that are more than minimal risk
