Mayo Clinic TBI Model System - The CONNECT Trial Seeking Participants
If you are at least 18 years old and were hospitalized with TBI in the past 12 months, you may be able to help Mayo Clinic do a first-of-its-kind research study to understand how telemedicine (communicating by computer) might be an effective way to remotely connect TBI expertise with those who need it.

Mayo Clinic TBI rehabilitation specialists are seeking participants to help with a pre-research pilot in which the specialists will test different forms of communication (web based, email, smart phone, text, social media, Skype) to provide education, consultation, and other types of TBI related care from a distance.

If an individual is interested in this experience, we will also ask them whether we can communicate with their families or caregivers, as well as their local providers (for example, primary care providers and therapists), to also involve them in this experience.

Please contact Anne Moessner, RN at Moessner.anne@mayo.edu or 507-255-3116 if you are able to spend up to 4-6 hours of time over the course of about 60 days working with the Mayo Clinic TBI rehabilitation team. Any expertise or guidance provided during this limited-term pilot will be free.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to help us learn, your time and efforts will greatly contribute to the success of this project!
