Alzheimer's Disease TIPS II Survey

* The TIPS Study, or Treatment and Illness Perceptions Survey, is a study funded by the national Alzheimer's Association to learn more about differences between African Americans' and Whites' attitudes, beliefs, and experiences related to Alzheimer's disease (AD). The study involves a one-time 30-minute telephone survey in which participants are asked about a range of topics related to AD, including their personal experiences, their beliefs about the disease's symptoms and risk factors, and their attitude toward possible future treatment options. Information from the survey will be used to develop more culturally sensitive health education and healthcare services for persons with AD. A total of 210 participants are being sought (105 African Americans, and 105 Whites). Participants who complete the survey will be given a $10.00 check, plus informational brochures on AD and the latest newsletter from the Boston University Alzheimer's Disease Center.

Who is Eligible to Participate?

We will be surveying people from three groups:

caregivers of people with Alzheimer's disease or related

memory problems;

immediate blood relatives (i.e., siblings and adult children) of

people with Alzheimer's disease or related memory problems;

adults age 40 and above without immediate family experience

with Alzheimer's disease.

What's in it for the Participants?

All participants who complete the survey will receive a $10.00 check, an information packet on Alzheimer's disease, and the latest newsletter from the Boston University Alzheimer's Disease Center.
