Research at the Pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Program

UPMC Content 2

The Pediatric OCD Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) maintains an active research registry. We collect data for our research registry from clinical information that children and families provide as part of their usual care in the clinic.

We use this information to:

  • Ask and answer questions about how children respond to our treatment
  • Inform our individual clinic about OCD therapies
  • Generate scientific work, such as conference presentations and journal articles

We invite all children and families enrolled in the OCD IOP to participate in the research registry; however, participation is entirely voluntary. Declining participation will not affect the services you receive.

Children and families who enroll in the registry also may be notified if they are eligible for ongoing research studies across UPMC.
