Manual of Procedures

Each in-person visit (and corresponding annual follow-up) consists of a standardized protocol and centralized training. The Manual of Procedures is the written standardized protocol. The certification for the centralized training is located in the quality control chapter of the manual of procedures. Each chapter of the manual of procedures is organized by a phenotypic domain, and most chapters which describe data collection also have a data collection form. These are documented by phenotypic domain and include all visits below.
