African Americans and other ethnic and racial populations have low rates of participation in clinical and community research trials. We must increase our understanding of factors that influence participation of individuals from communities of color in our research studies if we are to achieve adequate representation of all populations in nursing research. The purpose of this study was to determine facilitators and barriers to participation in an intervention community trial to increase breast cancer screening in low-income African American women. We used the individual and investigator components of Powe and Tiffany's framework for achieving full participation in clinical trials to guide this study. The study's sample consisted of 6 African American community agency representatives from recruitment sites and 9 research project staff who participated in one of 3 focus groups. Participants were asked the following three broad questions: (1) What were your experiences with recruiting the women into the study? (2) What facilitated and hindered the women's participation? and (3) What recommendations would you suggest to encourage enrollment of medically underserved African American women into future studies? Using content analysis procedures four reviewers identified themes followed by categories that emerged from the three research questions. The categories were: (1) location is everything; (2) going to the gatekeepers; (3) knowing requires "being"; and (4) protocols vs. possibilities. Findings showed that characteristics of community recruitment sites, communications of research staff with front line site staff, relationship building with community gatekeepers, knowledge of family and community culture, and constraints in research protocol were the most frequently identified factors affecting participant recruitment. Investing time in the community, a need that is often not funded, was a dominant thread throughout each focus group's discussion. Descriptions of each category will be presented and specific recommendations for improving participant recruitment in nursing research studies will be offered.
