¶ … Participation in Clinical Research Trial: Strategies Researchers Use to Increase Recruitment for the Studies
Strategies Researchers use to Increase Recruitment for their Studies
In order to conduct successful qualitative research, researchers need to recruit the right participants for clinical trials. However, there are many setbacks when it comes to identification and recruitment of these participants due to various problems, such as differing personal preferences, ineffectiveness of the research methods used, demographics, and character traits of the target population. According to Funa and colleagues (2014), one effective strategy that can be used to increase research participants is to fully understand the target population. They state that differences in cultures, education levels, and values may discourage the participants, and researchers need to take time to discover the topics they are sensitive to, what they believe in, and the level of education they have attained. However, the effectiveness of this strategy is not guaranteed because the participants may still be uncooperative, particularly because they still view the researches as outsiders despite some knowledge of their culture. The researchers may also lack the necessary resources and time to learn all they can about the target population, who might still not be of help.
The Insight Medical Publishing Limited (iMedPub) conducted a research aimed at identifying the most successful recruitment strategy....
In the organization's report titled 'No Health Without Research' iMedPub claimed that the two most successful strategies were the use of incentives to coerce the participants and engagement of the participants by teaching them about the particular health problem under study and the impact it has on their health (iMedPub, 2012). In agreement with iMedPub, Purdue University (2014) believes that monetary incentives provide the best motivation for the participants because they recommend the use of a variety of incentives which include: coercion to entice them to participate, compensation in various forms - that will reimburse them for their time, finder's fees for organizations or individuals that refer potential research participants, and the use of recruitment bonuses aimed at accelerating the recruitment process. The main problem with iMedPub and Purdue University's monetary incentive strategy is the additional costs the researchers will incur. More often than not, researchers have to struggle with inadequate resources and to use large sums of money as incentives, which in fact are not guaranteed to work. iMedPub's strategy of engaging the participants may be frustrated by the differences in…
Recruitment Increasing Level Participation Clinical Trials Delays completion a clinical trial typically caused lack patient availability. In fact, studies 10% eligible patients participate clinical trials. Recruitment: Methods and challenges One of the most common recruitment strategies when soliciting individuals to participate in experiments is offering financial compensation through general advertisements on the web, radio, or in other publications. Financial compensation encourages individuals to participate in clinical trials and other types of research studies
Participation in a Research Study It is imperative that a subject understands the importance of his or her involvement in any research study. This is fundamental especially in researches that may involve full participation of an individual (which may affect his or her daily activities). As a result, every researcher must ensure that his or her subjects are fully informed about the research and are ready to follow through to the
Faith Integration Preventing Research Misconduct through Faith Integration The process of conducting research is typically aimed at exploring a scientific postulate, confirming an emergent theory or disproving a faulty hypothesis. By and large, the purpose of research is to further human understanding and improve our abilities in areas such as the sciences, sociology and medicine. Yet, there are distinct challenges to ensuring that this research is conducted with a clear code of
Scientific research facilitates acquisition of true knowledge, whose highest level is being able to examine scientific issues (Glickman et.al 2009). If knowledge constitutes a universal human property thus greatly impacting overall societal development and wellbeing, the key goal of science will clearly be the truth. Moreover, science’s credibility with the masses is reliant on upholding the highest standards of ethicality when conducting research. Sticking to such guidelines helps prevent deviation
Being able to merge the resources of a variety of different specialists is one strength of the Memorial Herman approach. In the future, as the interrelationship between the body and the brain, and psychological disorders and overall functioning has become an accepted part of mainstream science: studies such as these will be even more important for research institutes. Memorial Herman is clearly on the cutting-edge of the field in
Other states, in the case of medical research, mandate that a more stringent standard is applied -- that of the reasonable person standard (Edwards 2008). In other words, would a reasonable person consider the nature of the research ethical and acceptable? This seems fairer -- but is also more intensely subjective. And when conducting research in a different cultural context, it may be difficult for the researcher to evaluate
