CCTS Recruitment and Retention

Summary:

Recruitment and Retention can help design those first touch points with the community and share best practices to help researchers achieve their recruitment/retention goals. The goal of every research study is one that is fully recruited with high retention. In order to make that goal a possibility, research teams are encouraged to request recruitment/retention consultation early in the planning and design stages of their studies to reduce the burden of study participant recruitment, which can often be more challenging than expected.
