A Comparison of Respiratory Sample Collection by a Parent or by a Healthcare Worker

2014-08-27 03:19:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators are aiming to learn more about respiratory infections in young children in the community. To prepare for a larger project, the investigators are conducting this study to get information about the best way to collect and transport respiratory specimens from young children. The investigators would like to test whether parents are more likely to collect a simple respiratory specimen themselves during a child's illness, compared to the likelihood of specimen collection when a home visit is made by a health care worker. Further, the investigators want to compare the likelihood a virus will be identified in both groups.
