Transforming Research with the
Patient and Caregiver Voice

The Research Loop transforms research by adding the patient and caregiver voice in a whole new way by closing the gap in the linear research process between when a completed study is published and before new research starts.

By registering and filling out the Offering Feedback to Researchers form, you can give input on published research to highlight ways future research can improve.  You can comment on anything from whether the research topic is useful one to keep studying, to the research design and how it was conducted and analyzed, to the conclusions the researchers came to with their findings.  The feedback will be offered to researchers who can incorporate your thoughts into their future projects, helping them identify issues that matter to patients and caregivers and improve the quality of research.

It’s simple!
