Meeting subject recruitment goals is a significant challenge for most studies. Successful subject recruitment is a particularly daunting problem for studies which rely on the clinical staff of service provision programs to identify potential subjects. Although clinical staff are well-positioned to identify and facilitate a connection between potential subjects and researchers, consistent recruitment efforts are not easily maintained because of the numerous competing demands on staff time and the relative unimportance of the research endeavor as compared to the provision of clinical service. While several researchers have briefly described either the challenges in utilizing program staff to recruit and/or offered limited strategies to overcome these barriers, the scope of this prior work is limited. Based on the experiences of the three co-authors of this presentation, who have relied on clinical staff to recruit subjects in vulnerable populations, the purpose of this presentation is to describe an array of staff engagement strategies that have successfully increased staff recruitment efforts. These strategies, which are in part guided by Roger's Diffusion of Innovations paradigm, will be presented "developmentally," e.g. strategies to use at the beginning of the study when recruiting clinical personnel and training them to implement the study procedures, in the middle of the project to keep clinical staff committed to recruiting, and ending the study.
