What is the purpose of the new Telephone Follow-up Packet (TFP), v3.2?
The new version of the TFP — that is, the one containing the C2T neuropsych battery (T-cog) — was created by the CTF as a replacement for the original UDS v3 TFP. In other words, there are still only three packet types:
- Initial Visit (in person)
- Follow-up Visit (in person), and
- Telephone follow-up.
(A telephone version of the Initial Visit Packet is being developed, however.) The new TFP can still be used with participants and co-participants who have physical or cognitive issues that prevent them from making in-person visits, since the two additional forms (i.e., B6, C2T) are optional.
