Half of patients who enroll in the study receive a short memory test when they sign up, while the other half do not. Research Assistants track the ups and downs in the participant’s quality of life over the course of a year, and analyze medical records to get the best snapshot of participant health. The study team will then examine the trends displayed by these two groups to see if there is any significant difference.
As of February 2016, 3500 out of 4000 patients have been recruited. The protocol for the IU-CHOICE study has been published in the journal Trials.
We would like to congratulate Dr. Boustani and the IU-CHOICE team. As of October 2016, the IU CHOICE study has achieved patient enrollment goals.
