Research Consultation Guidelines

  • Once the maximum time reached, if more consultation/support is to be provided, the requestor and INSPIRE-PHC researcher providing the consultation will agree to a longer term arrangement, for example:
  • The requestor (or their project PI) will be charged by the hour (for current rates please contact the INSPIRE-PHC program manager), or
