Timeline for Recruitment Accrual

  • It is very helpful to forecast your research participant recruitment timelines by plotting out the expected or targeted number of participants recruited compared to the actual number of participants recruited. Download a recruitment Accrual Planning Spreadsheet.
  • Be sure to have a system in place to track the responses you will get as a result of your outreach efforts.
  • A recruitment timeline spreadsheet will also be helpful to get a better idea of site resource load per week and the expected number of subject visits and types of visits.
  • Successful clinical trial recruitment involves the development and implementation of a well-managed plan. Subject recruitment efforts should be evaluated throughout the recruitment process and new strategies should be implemented as needed.
