Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Clinical Studies Recruitment Planning Guide
This NIA-produced planning guide for investigators, study coordinators, recruitment communications staff, and others involved in clinical research outlines strategies for improving community-based research participation. The strategies are outlined in steps, along with success indicators and lessons learned. The guide includes sections on: 1) developing equitable and sustainable community partnerships, 2) promoting health and science literacy for healthcare providers, community partners, patients, and families, and 3) implementing system reforms to address bias in workforce diversity and cultivate community bridges to broaden outreach. The Planning Guide was developed by the Local, Diverse Working Group in discussions and workshops to produce the National Strategy for Recruitment and Participation in Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Clinical Research.
