Lawson’s Administration Team remains committed to our community and will continue to meet the needs of research; however, we may ourselves experience reduced capacity and service levels.
Information for research participants:
In our ongoing efforts to help keep the community safe, virtual visits for all study participants are being encouraged whenever possible. You may still be asked to come to a hospital site for your visit if it is essential as part of your care and participation in the research study.
Your study team will contact you directly if there are any changes to your involvement including scheduled visits. You can also contact the study team should you have questions about your involvement and treatment (if applicable). Where possible, research teams will be using telephone or online communication to connect with you.
Any questions or concerns can be sent to Lawson directly at email@example.com.
Please note that London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph’s Health Care London sites have implemented visitor restrictions and active screening for anyone entering the buildings.
Information for study sponsors:
Lawson Health Research Institute values the partnerships we share with sponsors to advance the health of patients around the world. As the second wave of COVID-19 progresses with rising cases across the province and country, we must continue to facilitate sponsor visits using virtual methods to protect the health and safety of our community.
Please download our remote monitoring guidance document and check back regularly for the most recent version (last updated on April 8, 2021).
