Nurses on my unit are being asked (told?) to participate in a study of a medical device manufactured by a for- profit corporation. Non invasive medical device will be applied to our patients. The company reps are being compensated to be on hand to "in service" us. The study physician will get some type of authorship credit I suppose. And the staff nurses doing the grunt work? What do you think? Just part of the job? I don't like my labor on behalf of a for-profit company who is not my employer to be taken for granted.
