When you call RRC to inquire about being a clinical study participant, a member of the RRC study team will discuss study specifics and will ask you questions about your medical history. If you meet the criteria for participation in the study we will ask you to come to our office for a screening visit.
During the screening visit, a study team member will talk to you about the study. You will be given information about why the study is being conducted, the procedures involved in your participation and any risks and benefits. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not you would like to participate in the study.
If you decide that you would like to participate, you will be asked to sign a consent form outlining all the information that you discussed with the study staff. After consent is obtained you will be scheduled for the additional study sessions.
