Recruitment, Engagement, & Retention Core Trainings

Summary of Critical Reflection Presentation

This session covers the two readings (Gilmore-Bykovskyi et al., 2021; Fritz et al., 2021), the RER checklist, and a general looking ahead for pilot grantees. Main takeaways include: (1) By focusing on individual-level factors of participation, a unidirectional moral obligation on participants is imposed and requires the participant to align their goals with that of researchers; (2) Acute care recruitment approaches must consider situation, recruiter skillset, periods of uncertainty, and preferred timing; and (3) it is important to appraise aspects of your research protocol for elements that can either help or harm participation (e.g., eligibility criteria, level of participant involvement).
