While the research base is limited, there are key best practices in recruitment, accrual and retention that should be employed by researchers. The Advisory Panel on Clinical Trials Subcommittee on Recruitment, Accrual, and Retention will cull these best practices in order to help inform PCORI Funding Announcements and related review criteria, guide PCORI monitoring of funded contracts by providing technical assistance and support, and provide additional direction regarding the engagement of healthcare stakeholders around recruitment, accrual and retention.
