We at the COMPPARE Coordinating Center have been actively monitoring the evolving situation related to the COVID-19 outbreak and are committed to helping safeguard the well-being of the caregivers, staff, and patients involved in this important study. To that end, we have encouraged all participating sites to do the following:
- Conduct phone visits in lieu of in-person visits.
- Conduct virtual on-treatment visits and follow-ups.
- Permit “out of window” visits and/or cancel nonessential research participant visits.
We have also asked sites to immediately notify the Coordinating Center of any closures, contingency plans, or policy changes implemented by their institution that might affect their ability to enroll or treat patients on the COMPPARE study. Please contact the COMPPARE team at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
