The purpose of this study is to identify questions about the quality of life for people with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). Quality of life is defined as an individual’s opinion of the quality of his or her daily life and includes emotional, social, physical environment and health related dimensions. It is important to see if the standard questions asking about quality of life are appropriate for people with OI or if a new set of questions should be created for the OI community.
The Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network (RDCRN) Brittle Bone Disorders (BBD) Consortium Contact Registry is a vehicle through which patients (and their families) can register with the RDCRN to receive information about the activities of the BBD Consortium and learn about new studies in which they might be interested in participating. The RDCRN has developed surveys to be sent to the Contact Registry registrants to learn more about disease outcomes (patient reported outcomes) and collect more detailed diagnostic data.
About this Study
Individuals with OI will be recruited via the BBD Contact Registry. The BBD Contact Registry consists of over 900 participants with OI.
Participants enrolled in the BBD Contact Registry will receive an email inviting them to participate in the study. Interested participants will be directed to the informed consent document. After agreeing to participate, participants will be directed to the study web portal. The study web portal will be developed and maintained by the Data Management and Coordinating Center at the University of South Florida (USF).
Participants will complete a series of short surveys about their OI, including diagnosis, treatment information and quality of life.
