After we complete the initial assessment and we have collectively identified a Principal Investigator (PI) who will be the lead physician involved with the clinical trials and will be responsible for its oversight, we will discuss with the practice and the physician how KUR Research works in more detail. During the discussion we will review the expectations, time commitments, responsibilities, and the procedures that will need to be completed prior to starting the research program.
Next, we would discuss necessary support staff roles and responsibilities that will be involved in the clinical trial process from the practice and KUR Research. Once all the information is reviewed and agreed upon, KUR Research will present the physician and practice with the agreement contract for review. Once the contract is signed, KUR Research will initiate the research program within their practice.
