C5R Membership Application Form Application for Membership in the Consortium of Canadian Centres for Clinical Cognitive Research (C5R) Step 1 of 6 16% C5R MISSION C5R’s mission is to facilitate collaborative clinical cognitive research in Canada; to establish a forum for the exchange of information relevant to research in cognitive disorders; to consider and make recommendations upon the methodologies of clinical cognitive research and to advocate for appropriate treatment of clinical cognitive disorders; to provide consensus opinion upon clinical and research issues as may most expediently benefit the health of the Canadian population, including guidelines for practice; and to develop liaisons with agencies supporting cognitively impaired patients.Benefits of Membership Include: Enhanced efficiency in the procurement of trials for investigators. Providing a communication network for all clinical researchers interested in dementia across Canada. Negotiating a common patient budget. This relieves the need for individual negotiations with pharmaceutical companies. The abiding principle is that all members receive equal compensation for equal work performed. Surplus funds of the C5R could be applied to promote the development of multicentre investigator driven trials. The C5R could be influential in modifying the design of clinical protocols being proposed by pharmaceutical companies. Conditions of Membership No member shall have been sanctioned or disciplined by any medical professional regulating body. All members shall provide such reasonable and continuing financial disclosure as C5R’s Board of Directors may require from time to time. All members shall comply with any reasonable conditions of membership imposed by C5R’s Board of Directors, including the payment of any reasonable membership fees or dues. Obligations of Membership, all members agree to: Pay annual dues as determined by the C5R Board of Directors. With respect to clinical trial negotiations with drug companies, members will not deal directly and/or autonomously with individual pharmaceutical companies. Members shall direct all such enquiries to the C5R secretariat office. Every member will be notified of all clinical trials presented by a Sponsor, but the ultimate decision to select a clinical trial site will be determined independently by the sponsor. Sponsors will be provided with a list of all C5R members interested in their trial. If members choose to participate in clinical trials outside the Consortium, they will forego membership until that particular clinical trial finishes (as defined by closeout visit completed). During such time, the member shall not receive any of the benefits of membership and will be required to certify that such outside clinical trial has been completed before membership shall re-commence. All members are required to abide by the terms of any blanket corporate confidentiality agreements executed by the Consortium Chairperson(s), on behalf of the Consortium members and the organization at large. A clinical trial centre where a C5R member anticipates conducting clinical research will have to provide sponsors with a history of past trial experiences, local resources available (freezers, centrifuge etc.) and other information (e.g. trial completions etc.), as becomes necessary to be incorporated into the database for each centre. An annual meeting of the C5R members will be held. Protection of Privacy Information The C5R complies with the principles of the Personal Information Protection and electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
