How best can clinicians and other health professionals be educated to optimise recruitment to randomised trials?

‘How best’ refers to where, when, what and by whom.
  • “Training / information session prior to trial commencement are key for ensuring staff are adequately prepared for running the trial.”
  • “All clinicians are potentially recruiters – they need more information, training and motivation”
  • “Methods such as recruiter training workshops and QRIs (including audio-recording and analysis of recruitment consultations, recruiter feedback) can be powerful.”
