Safety Measures During Recovery
Considering the current and evolving situation with COVID-19, safety is our top priority. We have implemented strict antiseptic procedures and will continue to abide by the most up to date guidelines for BC. We have also made modifications to our study to minimize physical contact, including moving a portion of the set-up visit for the clinical trail online. All study materials including binders and computer equipment will be sterilized with antiseptic wipes before packing. On the day of in-person visits, both participants and research personnel will be screened for symptoms. Our research personnel will wear personal protective equipment including masks and gloves. Participants will also be offered a mask to wear during in-person visits. If you have any questions related to safety, please do not hesitate to ask.
