Ouch! Navigating Payment for Research-Related Injuries – How to Avoid the Potholes on the Road to Recovery

Sponsors of clinical trials are facing formidable challenges regarding payments for research-related injury as well as payment incentives to patients for participation. This webinar will address the conundrum of the “Medicare Secondary Payer” law, including how it affects a sponsor’s promise to pay for research-related injuries and disclosure to CMS of payments for injury. Further complicating the analysis are ethical issues raised by healthcare facilities and IRBs regarding payments to clinical trial subjects, as well as the uncertain regulatory and enforcement landscape of the risks and benefits of sponsor payments to patients as incentives for participation in trials. This panel will provide a road map for navigating the multiple issues that arise in the negotiations between sponsors, clinical trial sites and IRBs regarding payments for research-related injuries in clinical trials.
