KPMP Research Protocols

All research conducted by the KPMP consortium sites is done so according to a plan (a protocol). These protocols provide detailed guidelines for conducting a study and illustrate what will be done within a study by explaining each essential part of it and how it is carried out. In other words, protocols help researchers explain what they want to learn and how they’ll carry out their work.

All KPMP protocols are reviewed and revised periodically as the consortium adds new techniques or learns things that warrant updating our process.
