(PRECEDE) PREsurgical Cognitive Evaluation via Digital clockfacEdrawing Bank

Purpose

We wish to store your medical information and collect and store blood to potentially use it in future research. Many different kinds of research uses medical information. Some researchers might discover new information that leads to the development of new products, such as tests and drugs. Others may develop new ways to treat or even cure diseases. Some research looks at diseases that are passed on in families (called genetic research). Research done with your medical information and blood/saliva sample may look for genetic causes and signs of disease.

Procedures

  • Information from your medical record including demographic information, past medical/surgical history, information about your surgery and anesthesia, pain intensity, family medical history, and questionnaires
  • A small blood draw will be taken (approximately 3 Tablespoons) to assess for biological markers of thinking and memory abilities and rule out neurodegenerative diseases, Alzheimer’s Disease, and vascular dementia markers that may contribute to memory/thinking problems.
  • The blood will be stored in a locked freezer system. If used for future research investigations, the blood will not be re-linked to the name or identity of the participant. Rather, it will only be linked to the other data provided as part of the current research study.
