Award Description: he purpose of this proposed administrative supplement to the K23 parent grant entitled 'Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine in Pregnancy: Physiologic and Clinical Effects, grant # 1K23AT003304, is to hire one additional full time research coordinator to expand subject recruitment to additional clinics. This would increase the study population pool and accelerate the enrollment of subjects. Current resources provide limited time for recruitment of new subjects, and supports the enrollment of only a limited number of active subjects. For each subject enrolled, 12 are screened. Therefore, each new subject enrolled requires an average of 3.5 hours of work. In addition, actively enrolled subjects require an average of 1.35 hours each, including the time in study visits and other administrative tasks. Currently, this study has part-time support of a research coordinator, allowing for an average of 1 new subject recruited a week, in addition to followup visits. Additional research coordinator time will enable us to enroll and see additional subjects that will more than double the capacity of the study, and accelerate enrollment. These subjects would come from the opening of a new clinical enrollment site. Additional biostatistics support is also requested to respond to the accelerated and expanded pace of the study. The goal is to enroll 300 additional study subjects in the next 24 months. One-hundred-seven subjects have been enrolled in the past 24 months. The PI has completed her studies for the doctorate degree, thus will have additional time available to promote the study, supervise additional personnel, and recruit subjects.
Project Description: With an additional full-time research coordinator, we will be opening a new recruitment site to increase enrollment in our study on OMM in Pregnancy.
