    Finding and enrolling participants in human studies has always been a challenge for the investigator and study personnel. Issues such as attrition, lack of participant engagement and clear communication, to name a few, can negatively impact recruitment and retention. This toolkit contains proven strategies and tips to help researchers develop a solid plan to recruit and retain study participants.

    More and more, grant proposals are requesting researchers to ensure that they have worked with or plan to integrate the community into their research proposal. One approach to this is to develop a community advisory board (CAB) who can provide feedback into all aspects of your research study including: 1) developing research questions; 2) developing recruitment plans; 3) reviewing study

    Study monitoring is an essential and routine quality function in industry-sponsored trials. However, access to high quality study monitoring is often lacking in investigator-initiated trials conducted in academic medical centers. Indeed, two separate surveys of research professionals in Southern Calfornia revealed that only about 65% reported a monitoring in their investigator-initiated trials
