Upcoming Free Webinar:
Wanted: Clinical Trial Participants Recruitment
Strategies for You!
Wednesday, September 15, 2021
1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
Recruitment for clinical trials involves attracting and selecting suitable research participants
for a specific study. It sounds easy enough and yet 86% of all clinical trials fail to finish on
time, many due to participant recruitment and retention issues. Advertising mediums, such
as social media and patient registries can recruit large numbers of potential participants,
but are the participants engaged throughout the entire trial? This webinar will discuss
recruitment strategies for rare diseases, children, medical devices, and veterans. By the
end of this session, the learner will be able to:
1. Define research participant recruitment, and disease-dependent strategy variations,
and what should be included within the recruitment materials.
2. Explain three types of active and passive strategies to recruit research participants.
3. Discuss the clinical research nursing implications for recruiting research participants.
