IRC & IRB Approvals Received

Our study falls under the rubric of medical research. As such we have had to apply for and receive approval for our research from external review boards. This has been a complicated process due to the review boards unfamiliarity with our pre-design research practices. The review board deals exclusively with quantifiable research methods and did not know how to handle our open ended approach. Future design studies within a medical context will face similar hurdles and we hope to summarize our experience for others to help them through this process.
