Recruitment Strategies

There are many strategies to provide information to members of the target population and request their participation.

  • Examples include:
    • Informational sessions with the target population
    • Website postings
    • E-mail or direct mailing a message requesting participation
    • Posting or handing out flyers to potential participants
    • Consider whether incentives for participation are appropriate

It is important to choose methods that will help ensure a representative sample.

The Ethical Considerations module will further discuss ethical recruitment.
