Recruitment Plan Template (CART)
This five-page document presents a standardized recruitment plan for prevention, symptomatic, and observational trials conducted at the Center for Alzheimer Research and Treatment (CART), Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The plan covers pre-initiation, study start-up, and study initiation phases. It is intended as a tool to support investigators, recruitment/outreach staff, research assistants, and coordinators and to help inform sponsors of the resources and the planning process used to support recruitment. Study-specific needs are addressed during pre-initiation by the research team, and the plan is tailored to support study-specific recruitment needs. Recruitment efforts are measured and evaluated regularly to ensure recruitment goals are being reached. Attachments to the plan are entitled: "Recruitment Strategies," "Recruitment Tools," and "Recruitment/Outreach Staff Descriptions and Roles."
