PERSPECTIVES: TWO VIEWS


Intersection of community education study recruitment

INTERSECTION OF COMMUNITY EDUCATION & STUDY RECRUITMENT


Recommendations

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Recognition that community education (CE) supports research, recruitment and retention; Recruitment alone does not support research

  • Trial sites should develop clear goals, objectives and community engagement plans.

    • A clear community engagement plan that includes CE will help to sustain CE during trials

  • Roles, responsibilities and objectives of each have to be clearly defined

  • Adequate funding, training and support

  • Synergies / commonalities


Conclusion

CONCLUSION

  • Study recruitment and community education intersect and are inherently related but have different objectives. As such, how to best serve these dual needs (or ‘masters’) must be clearly defined.

  • As we head into the next generation of HIV prevention clinical studies and contemplate the best use of resources for the field, it is vital that we:

    • acknowledge and address the potential challenges introduced by the desire to conduct effective, credible community education and the need to meet study recruitment/retention targets; and

    • learn from experiences of past and ongoing studies as we turn toward a new chapter of HIV prevention research.
