We know that times have been uncertain lately but we are lucky enough to be still running the study. As a lot of things are changing in the world one constant is the value of the data our participants bring to us. We’ve been missing some of you and would love to have you back. Just a friendly reminder all data is of value to our study, so if you’ve noticed a change in your behaviour post pandemic that’s okay we’d still love to hear about it. Feel free to call or email us to see when you are due for another visit!
Check out below to see how we’ve made some changes in protocol to provide a safe participant experience.
After extensive planning and receiving the appropriate approvals from our ethics and safety team we have been allowed to reopen and resume data collection at Momentum/Engage.
Our main recommendations were to limit the amount of people in the office at a time as well as to limit the amount of time that people need to spend in the office.
To that effect one of the main changes we have made is that we have modified our questionnaire to be able to be completed at home online. For the participants who choose this option we send the questionnaire link to be completed at home and then when you finish it we will have you in for a nurse visit to do the required testing and receive compensation. This portion only take about 20-30 minutes ensuring you time in the office space is as limited as possible.
We will still be offering full visits (questionnaire and testing) in the office for those who do not have access to a computer or internet.
For any questions regarding these new procedures feel free to call or email the office.
