Not for medication but for something else, maybe.

Funny you should say that. Yes - we already have. BUT, I wasn't wholly comfortable with it right away.

I think it depends on what kind of study. The one that Maggie participated in was observational, and it was done at her preschool, by a university representative who was studying empathy and compassion in children. It was observational play with video recording and the appropriate statements were made about retention and usage of the documents/video.

I would not sign her up for anything more intrusive than observation, and nothing for a marketing purpose. The way I looked at it was if we don't study something, we don't learn it. I have the same philosophy about my own participation in things. And at the end of the day, I had to ask myself what I would be saying "no" to. Was it just because I didn't want anyone looking at her? Was it because I didn't feel comfortable talking about her participation in a "study"? Had I been watching too much sci fi (aka Fringe)?

So yeah, my line is with how intrusive a study is. Will she be connected to any machinery in any way? That will be out. Will her responses be manipulated in any extreme way? That will be out too. Even now though, I can tell I've watched waaaay too much sci fi and it's impacting my view of the world.

im not sure, maybe if it were just observational like what Becky described, but not for medication or anything intrusive

I agree with what Becky as well, it would have to totally just be observational.

huh...so I hadn't even been thinking about medication when I wrote my response. If Maggie were ill with a severe disease and we needed extreme treatment, I would probably weigh everything pretty heavily and make as informed a decision as I could make. That all said, we don't have the same "expediting" of clinical trials that seems to happen in the US. I don't think it would be entirely off the table for me if it was her best chance at beating something.

Interested in your thoughts though Shantel. Why would you just say "No"? I'm not trying to stir up debate, but am really curious...it was not easy for me to say yes at all - and I really couldn't put the pin on why it felt so uncomfortable.
