Title:
Recruitment of Adolescents: Comparison of School Based and Community Sites
Abstract:
Recruitment of Adolescents: Comparison of School Based and Community Sites
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:2007
Author:Logsdon, M. Cynthia, DNS
P.I. Institution Name:University of Louisville
Contact Address:School of Nursing, K- Building, Louisville, KY 40292, KY, 40292, USA
Co-Authors:M.D. Pinto-Foltz, School of Nursing, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY 40292, KY
Background: Addressing health issues in adolescents is a national priority (NIH, 1998; Healthy People 2010). However, recruitment of adolescents into research studies can be challenging due to developmental priorities of adolescents, IRB/ethical concerns and state legal statutes requiring both parental and adolescent consent, and adolescent sample access issues. Recruitment can be very costly when efforts result in low enrollment. Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to compare procedures, costs and consent issues in recruiting adolescents from school based and community sites. Method: Methodology and cost data from several of the authors' studies of social support and symptoms of depression in childbearing and non childbearing adolescents will be compared. Additional data from a focus group of adolescents will be presented that describes adolescents' preferences for stipends and feedback on study instruments. Findings: School based sites are more cost effective to recruit adolescents. The critical role of a site-based research facilitator will be described. Issues related to external reviewer feedback on grants and manuscripts and external validity of research findings related to study sites will be discussed. Implications: Today's funding environment makes it imperative to balance the most cost effective recruitment procedures with obtaining study findings that can be generalized to a wider population.
