Recruitment: Federally funded synergies (Milestone 12.B)

Create synergies between federally funded programs such as PCORI and CTSAs to make community involvement less expensive, and to learn from the various experiments of community engagement. 

Success Criteria

  • Convene an advisory meeting with representatives from relevant federally funded programs to develop strategies for enhancing community involvement in dementia research on the national level. 

Summary of Key Accomplishments

NIA collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Administration for Community Living on the Recruiting Older Adults into Research project to encourage older adults and their family caregivers, including underrepresented populations, to consider participating in research, including research on AD/ADRD. One of the main products of this inter-agency collaboration was a toolkit of recruitment materials that could be tailored to specific research efforts.

The key accomplishments summary is current as of July 2022.
