A recent survey of CCOP administrators that was presented at the NCI-ASCO Cancer Trial Accrual Symposium showed that about 80% of those who responded do NOT use individual study recruitment and retention plans. During the breakout session, discussions about writing recruitment plans included a range of opinions from those who feel that “it’s just more paperwork” to those who find extensive planning to be very useful. I’m interested in hearing if professionals in the field who are involved in recruitment use written recruitment plans and if so the format of the plans that they use and might be willing to share. Thank you in advance.
