No. You only have to review the research study protocol and attend the protocol briefing presentation. After reviewing the protocol, you can then decide to participate in the study or not.
2. As an FMRN member, if I choose to participate in a protocol, am I required to enroll a targeted number of patients?
No. If you choose to participate in a protocol, you are not required to enroll a targeted number of patients.
You will be compensated based on your time and effort for your research.
No. SCRI will purchase trial or study insurance for each study to be conducted on the FMRN, which will cover events attributable to the conduct of the study. This insurance is NOT a substitute for each member’s private malpractice insurance.
Yes, as long as the studies do not compete for the same patient pool.
Authorship requires more than patient enrollment, collection of data and treatment of patients. Authors must, for example, participate in the research study protocol design, analysis, or manuscript writing. If you are interested in becoming a co-author, this should be discussed with the study Principal Investigator. SCRI does not compensate for time dedicated to these scientific efforts, but they can and will be recognised by authorship.
No. Being in the FMRN will not prevent you from joining other research networks.
Yes. You will be required to complete an online GCP course. SCRI will arrange and compensate for your time accordingly.
No. You may resign for any reason at anytime upon 90 days of written notice. Any research data, materials, medications, tools, or other instruments that were generated or provided by the FMRN are required to be returned at the time of resignation.
No. The FMRN membership is valid for 2 years. We envisaged renewing your membership with continued interests and participation in FMRN events, meetings and research studies.
