  3. 3. Standards for Technology and Study Protocols 1) Training of tDCS research staff 2) Initial and ongoing assessment of the user’s capability to participate 3) Supportive training procedures and materials (including assessment of the caregiver) 4) Simple and fail-safe electrode preparation and positioning 5) Strict dose control for each session 6) Ongoing monitoring for compliance 7) Ongoing monitoring for treatment-emerging adverse effects 8) Guidance to identify and implement discontinuation of a session and/or study participation (including emergency failsafe procedures) tailored to the treatment population’s level of need
