Stipends available to medical professionals who provide registration assistance to patients. Learn about CCIR's Assisted Registration Program.
The Cure Cystinosis International Registry understands that there are cystinosis patients who may wish to participate in the registry, but encounter barriers to registration. These barriers include not speaking any of the languages in which the registry is available, not having access to a computer, not having adequate computer skills, or needing help interpreting the medical questionnaire due to low literacy or education levels. Medical professionals who interact with these patients and support the registry’s mission may be instrumental in overcoming these barriers and facilitating patient registration. CCIR is therefore pleased to announce that a stipend is now available to compensate physicians and/or medical staff who dedicate time to assisting cystinosis patients with CCIR registration.
The stipend is set as $50 U.S. dollars per assisted registration of eligible cystinosis patients who express a desire to participate, but experience one or more barriers to registration.

In order to be eligible to conduct assisted registrations, professionals must meet the following criteria:
