2 research studies open to eligible people

  • Advancing Understanding of Transportation Options

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This Stage II randomized, controlled, longitudinal trial seeks to assess the acceptability, feasibility, and effects of a driving decision aid use among geriatric patients and providers. This multi-site trial will (1) test the driving decision aid (DDA) in improving decision making and quality (knowledge, decision conflict, values concordance and behavior intent); and (2) determine its effects on specific subpopulations of older drivers (stratified for cognitive function, decisional capacity, and attitudinally readiness for a mobility transition). The overarching hypotheses are that the DDA will help older adults make high-quality decisions, which will mitigate the negative psychosocial impacts of driving reduction, and that optimal DDA use will target certain populations and settings.

  • Analysis of Both Sex and Device Specific Factors on Outcomes in Patients With Non-Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this registry is to prospectively assess outcomes of device-treated ventricular tachyarrhythmias and all-cause mortality in non-ischemic cardiomyopathy patients indicated for ICD or CRT-D implantation for the primary prevention of sudden cardiac death. Differences in outcomes will be evaluated by sex and by device type.
