Potential TTR participants, who have or will receive medical treatment for a tumour, and are over the age of 18, may be referred by their Physician or they may self-refer to the TTR.
When a referral is received a TTR staff member will discuss the TTR with the potential participant. It is important that the potential participant has an informed consent discussion with a TTR staff member to make sure they understand what they would be agreeing to. The potential participant may also have questions that they would like answered before making a decision.
Potential TTR participants may provide consent to the TTR before or after their medical procedures.
Participating in the TTR is voluntary and will not affect medical care if the potential participant decides to participate or decides not to participate.
