26 Aug Family Caregiver Research Study
We are seeking caregivers who provide care for family members with dementia and pain to participate in a research study at Weill Cornell Medicine. This study is evaluating the “Pain Identification and Communication Toolkit (PICT)”, a novel intervention to help caregivers recognize and communicate about pain in family members with dementia. Eligible participants will be randomized to either the control or the intervention group. The control group participants will receive informational pamphlet and a link to an Alzheimer’s Association website. The intervention group participants will receive our PICT workbook and participate in four 30-60-minute telephone sessions with a social worker. Participants in both groups will complete brief surveys at the beginning and end of the study and will receive compensation up to $80.
Your participation can provide valuable information needed to further develop this tool to help family caregivers of individuals with dementia. This study is being conducted by Dr. Catherine Riffin and is funded by the National Institute on Health (NIH). This study is approved by the Weill Cornell Medicine Institutional Review Board, protocol #1811019718.
If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact Kiana Cruz, our research assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
