We respect the wishes of members of our community who do not wish to be enrolled in the trauma research clinical trials. If you do not want to participate in these research trials, you can request to opt out. We offer a silicone bracelet with the words “Opt Out of Trauma Research” engraved on it. You will have to wear this bracelet during the time these studies are being conducted – now through the end of the year 2022.

Even if you opt out, there is no guarantee that under emergency circumstances the bracelet will be attached to you while you are being cared for by an EMS agency. You might still be enrolled in the study. In the unlikely event that you are enrolled after you have requested not to be enrolled, we will not use any of the information collected, and all information pertaining to the enrollment will be destroyed.
