Have Any Of You Ever Participated In A Va Research Project?

Rate this question



When I was at the clinic the last time I noticed a pamplet about taking part in VA medical research.

It did not say if you would be paid.

It said to ask if you wuld be paid or charged anything, so I suppose it depends on what it is and with which department.


I was just wondering if any of you might now more about what's going on.

I participated in a study on walking and back injuries.

I was paid a total of around one hundered (20 sign-up, 40 first 6 months, 40 end of study).

Had to wear a pedometer and upload data from it, and would recieve target goals for how many steps a day they wanted me to achieve.

The idea of the study was to see:

1. If there was an improvement in percieved back pain due to increased walking.

2. If outcomes were affected by on-line coaching as compared to just giving the participant a goal.

Best regards,

I've been in three research projects over the years.

All related to hearing loss and/or tinnitus.

One I got paid a small stipend the others I did not.

I may be out-manned but I'll never be outgunned.

Shoot to stop the threat or till the magazine is empty.
