The recruitment stage involves identifying and recruiting patients, service users and collaborators; carrying out database searches and notes screening; and obtaining patient and service user consent for participation.
Recruitment of patients into studies is carried out by the research study team, including nurses from the Health and Care Research Wales Workforce, which supports the reporting of any safety issues as the study progresses. The Workforce can also provide a quality assurance role to both research staff and to the study itself.
The R&D Office will track patient recruitment, safety and study performance information collected by the Workforce, maintaining oversight of the study as it progresses.
