Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit

Recruitment and Informed Consent

Your study needs to recruit and retain participants quickly and efficiently.  However, this is often challenging.  We have experience of a wide range of approaches to recruitment in both clinical and non-clinical settings.  We can help you find the most appropriate approaches for your target population and research question, and help you explain your chosen approach to recruitment and informed consent to the Research Ethics Committee.

If it is not known which approach is best, it is a good idea to try out several methods before, or during the early stages of the study.  We will help design a mini study embedded within your study to help to help you find out which is the best approach. We describe this as either ‘research on research’ or a Study Within A Trial Swats.
