Summary

We are conducting this voluntary research study to build the operational concept for a device that will test low-intensity ultrasound as a treatment for chronic wounds in the homecare setting. During the study participants will be asked to participate in a focus group or individual interview to help us understand the challenges associated with providing wound care in a homecare setting and how people will interact with and use the device in a homecare setting, with individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. With permission these sessions may be recorded, and we expect participation in a single interview/focus group to last 60-90 minutes.

Description

We are conducting this voluntary research study to build the operational concept for a device that will test low-intensity ultrasound as a treatment for chronic wounds in the homecare setting. During the study participants will be asked to participate in a focus group or individual interview to help us understand the challenges associated with providing wound care in a homecare setting and how people will interact with and use the device in a homecare setting, with individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. With permission these sessions may be recorded, and we expect participation in a single interview/focus group to last 60-90 minutes. We do not anticipate any direct benefits for participating in this study; however, we believe this research may lead to a safe and effective treatment for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia and chronic wounds. The risks of participating are minimal, and include potential loss of privacy. Every effort will be taken to protect participants' information. Participants may feel uncomfortable sharing certain information in a group setting, but are not obligated to share any information that makes them uncomfortable. Participants may choose not to participate, or may leave the study at any time.
