Recruitment Manual
Recruitment of participants constitutes a significant portion of the workload associated with the DECAMPstudies. Therefore, the DECAMP project at your site will operate more effectively and efficiently if you develop and implement a well-thought out recruitment plan. The recruitment strategies presented in this manual are intended to serve as a framework as your site develops its individual plan.
