How to stay connected to the DCRI





We hope you took advantage of the recent opportunity to review and comment on the draft ADAPTABLE protocol. This was an opportunity to refine the protocol and enhance engagement for the trial by collecting advice or feedback on key aspects of the study from the patient, clinical, and research communities.
In addition to reviewing the protocol, there is an opportunity to help select the trial’s visual identity. We have developed three designs to represent the ADAPTABLE trial. We value your opinion and ask that you choose one design that you like best. You will see the results instantly. Have fun!
