Recruitment: Share best practices (Milestone 12.H)
Collaborate with research scientists to identify, evaluate, and increase knowledge about best practices for recruitment and retention of research participants.
- Collect, create, and make widely available to researchers central resources for both references and tools, including videos and presentation materials.
Summary of Key Accomplishments
In 2019, NIA launched Alzheimer’s and Dementia Outreach, Recruitment, and Engagement Resources (ADORE), a searchable online toolbox that provides a wide range of materials to help researchers engage, recruit, and retain participants in clinical trials and studies. This database houses resources including journal articles, toolkits, and recruitment plans shared by NIA-supported Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers and other agencies and organizations.
The key accomplishments summary is current as of March 2022.
