The purpose this committee is to enable the cooperation and participation in research pertaining to multiple births. Completed forms are used to collect information for statistical purposes and to locate specific type of multiples.
Research Forms (Members)
Providing our membership with information on research studies and to make them aware of how to participate in upcoming research projects, research forms are maintained and collected by our Research Chair. This individual keeps our membership updated on open studies related to multiples, outcome findings, and provides members and researchers statistical information and/or member contact information (upon request and permission).
Research (Outside Organizations)
Researchers from organizations outside of NWAMOTC contact us from time to time looking for certain types or ages of multiples. While we may advise our members of the study – participation is strictly voluntary. No pertinent information will ever be given without prior consent of a member.
Research forms also have the potential to help connect our own members with concerns about medical and/or social issues. One of the interesting responsibilities of Research is to report on data collected and retrieved from the completed forms and publish findings in the TOG.
