Abstract:
This presentation will focus on how recruitment of subjects has changed as the HIV epidemic has changed, particularly with regard to demographic characteristics of those infected. Recruitment of subjects in the 1980's consisted of finding primarily gay white men; this has changed to needing to locate and recruit infected women, people of color, and IV drug users. Recruitment strategies that worked with gay men do not work with recruiting these other groups. Some of the issues unique to recruiting HIV-positive subjects today include dealing with an unwillingness to come forward due to stigma, especially for the women; finding creative ways to recruit people of color into a study; and locating and persuading IV drug users to participate. The presenter will discuss how to "work" an area when the researcher is new to it (whether through a change in research topic or geographic location). The presenter will share strategies for identifying the key people one needs to know to be able to recruit from a specific site, identifying the gatekeepers, who are often different from the people in charge of a site, building coalitions, and nurturing relationships with recruitment materials, getting people to call, and how to work with potential subjects when they call. Snowballing and the use of case managers as recruiters will also be discussed.
