This is a section dedicated to Research Opportunities for X and Y variations that will ultimately help researchers study our conditions. The majority of the studies will not pay the participant, some may pay for travel and lodging and meals, however it is important that we provide information and data. A compilation of data will help the scientists and researchers to learn more about the X and Y conditions that we have and share. These studies are important and hopefully you can make contact with the various groups to provide your input.
STUDY TITLE: MyPaTH Story Book Interview
STUDY BASICS: Interested in sharing your story about health, illness, or research? Patients and caregivers are needed to participate in a research study to help 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 are important as researchers work to develop new topics to study. The purpose of this study is to create an archive of the patient, caregiver, and research participant stories that researchers can use to better understand people’s experiences with health, illness, coping, and the healthcare system. Researchers hope their findings will lead to the development of research studies that address topics that are important to patients and caregivers.
