Recruitment & Retention

How can you find research participants?

Identifying potentially eligible participants and their recruitment into a study is often the most difficult and time-consuming aspect of clinical research. When not enough participants are recruited or retained in a study, it compromises the validity of the research and increases the costs of the research study.

The Clinical Research Recruitment Services team within the Office of Clinical Research (OCR) can provide valuable expertise and assistance for investigators across the campus, including:

  • Feasibility assessments
  • Assistance with developing a recruitment plan
  • Cohort Identification
  • EHR recruitment/MyChart messages
  • Training on informatics tools for recruitment (i2b2 and SlicerDicer)
