Recruiting participants

Recruitment of participants can take many forms, but generally involves the presentation of core information about the research to potential participants, prior to their enrolment, in order to establish interest and willingness to take part in the study as research subjects. This information is often the first point of contact future participants have with the research and is thus considered the beginning of the informed consent process. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that information about the research is transparently presented. It is also paramount that the recruitment process is handled in an ethical manner.
