The University & the researcher: The University's coverage is extended to the Governors of the University of Alberta, its directors, officers and current employees. This includes physicians who carry out research and related academic activities as employees of the University and excludes activities related to clinical treatment or private medical practice, including research conducted within a private clinic.
Clinical treatment & CMPA: Insurance protection for claims arising from clinical treatment and medical malpractice is covered by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). This is an independent program outside of the University of Alberta.
Sub-sites, drug or device companies, third parties: Each entity involved in a clinical trial should be required to maintain insurance for their activities as part of the trial. Whenever the University is obligated to provide insurance for other sub-sites or third parties, a stand-alone insurance policy will be required.
