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.

You may want to test out your approach to recruitment in a feasibility study prior to conducting the main trial. Alternatively, it may be possible to evaluate approaches to recruitment within the main trial. We can help you design a mini-study embedded within your trial to help to help you find out which is the best approach. This is known as a Study Within A Trial (SWAT).
