Research Study Ideas
The Leadership Committee currently meets twice per month to discuss the development of the #NightscoutStudy Research COIN and potential research study ideas. Interviews have been conducted with individuals from the community to determine research topics of interest. From these initial discussions and interviews, six research study ideas were selected. We polled individuals from the community via Facebook and our #NightscoutStudy Research COIN email list to gauge interest in these six preliminary ideas. Results are below.
