Recruitment of Participants

Recruitment refers to the overall process of attracting and selecting participants for research. This is the beginning of the informed consent process and is one of the most challenging parts of research. It can be conducted through newspapers, emails, posters, fliers, advertisements, verbal announcements, or by soliciting volunteers in public spaces.

All recruitment material must be reviewed and approved by the IRB prior to it being used. Modify the recruiting examples to reflect your research study.
