Difficulty obtaining a sample is not a justification for failure to study a hard to enroll population, particularly a vulnerable population like pregnant adolescents. Recruitment of a representative, adequate size sample of pregnant adolescents for an instrument development study became expensive in terms of time and travel. Ultimately, the sample of 145 first-time English speaking pregnant teens age 15-18 who planned to keep their infants was obtained from 47 community sites (clinics, schools, community agencies) in 7 Midwestern Metropolitan areas. Although carefully developed, the sampling plan required several modifications to achieve the sample. In particular, challenges were encountered in the recruitment of sites, recruitment of participants within those sites, adaptation of recruitment procedures, and time involved in gaining the multiple human subjects protection approval necessitated by the numerous sites. This [paper/poster] will discuss both the challenges and the modifications made in the sampling plan in relation to: (a) developmental/personal issues of the pregnant teens, (b) informed consent issues, and (c) access/institutional issues. Recommendations for strategies for future research sampling will be offered.
