STUDY BASICS

Do you identify as someone with a developmental disability? You may be eligible for a research study is to figure out whether having a patient navigator to talk to and help get accommodations can help patients with developmental disabilities. The study would run for five months. You’d be asked to fill out three short surveys during that time. Compensation is provided.


STUDY PURPOSE

The purpose of the research study is to learn if a program of support can be set up to support individuals with developmental disabilities. We want to see if it will help increase healthcare satisfaction and how well you feel like you can speak out for yourself. We want to know if the program is helpful and easy to do.  You’d have access to a navigator for up to roughly two hours a week, if you needed to talk to someone about getting accommodations or have someone help you at an appointment. You wouldn’t have to utilize the navigator beyond what you’re comfortable doing.
