What do you need to do to join the study as a researcher?

Were you a PI for FOURIER Outcomes? If so, you may wish to join the study as a researcher.

Please contact the FOURIER Legacy study team by emailing Andrew Whitehouse (a.whitehouse@imperial.ac.uk) or Judy Mackay (j.mackay@imperial.ac.uk) or you can contact the study team.

If you were to take part you would be asked to:

  1. Contact by telephone all your patients who completed a final close-out visit for FOURIER Outcomes (we would supply you with a list of FOURIER IDs for all eligible subjects)
  2. Explain the FOURIER Legacy study to them and ask whether they would be interested.
  3. If they are interested, explain that consent and follow up would be done by the National Coordinating Centre at Imperial College London.
  4. Take verbal consent for their contact details to be sent to Imperial and send details by encrypted email.
  5. Post a copy of the patient information sheet to patients with a pre-paid envelope for returning to Imperial (all to be supplied by NCC)

Payments will be made to participating centres, based on administrative costs and also a per-patient payment for all consented patients.

We encourage researchers to view the FOURIER Legacy Protocol v1.3 for further details.
