Forte and Advarra recently hosted Evaluating Payment to Participate in Research: Ethical and Regulatory Issues, a webinar presented by Advarra IRB Chair Dr. Luke Gelinas. Dr. Gelinas outlined a framework for evaluating ethical and regulatory aspects of paying research participants, and presented case studies to work through hypothetical situations with attendees.
Following the presentation, Dr. Gelinas participated in a Q&A session to address the many thoughtful questions submitted by the audience. Due to time constraints we weren’t able to answer all questions, but Dr. Gelinas has provided a two-part Q&A article to address questions around sponsor compensation terms, local considerations around minimum wage, separating reimbursement from compensation, and more.
To see part one of the Q&A response, read the full article on Advarra’s website. And stay tuned for part two coming soon.
