This section is dedicated to Research Opportunities for X and Y variations that will help researchers study our conditions. The majority of the studies will not pay the participants. Some may pay for travel, lodging, and meals. However, we must provide information and data. A compilation of data will help scientists and researchers learn more about the X and Y conditions we have and share. These studies are important; hopefully, you can contact the various groups to provide your input.
STUDY TITLE: MyPaTH Story Booth Interview
STUDY BASICS: Interested in sharing your story about health, illness, or research? Patients and caregivers are needed to participate in a research study. This will help us learn more about topics that are important to you, and that may improve health and health care. Participation involves one 45-minute session that takes place over the phone. Eligible participants must be able to read and understand English.
STUDY PURPOSE: Understanding the experiences of patients, caregivers, and research participants is important as researchers work to develop new topics to study. This study aims to create an archive of the patient, caregiver, and research participant stories. This will allow researchers to understand better people’s experiences with health, illness, coping, and the healthcare system. Researchers hope their findings will lead to research studies that address topics important to patients and caregivers.
