Webinar – Participant Recruitment & Retention: Common Challenges & Recommended Strategies for HIV Prevention Research & Practice
While research and practice in HIV prevention present their own unique sets of obstacles, there are common challenges experienced by both researchers and practitioners in the field. Whether you’re delivering an HIV prevention intervention at a community-based site or conducting research on an innovative sexual health promotion tool at a university, recruitment and retention of participants are activities that can be complicated and frustrating.
In this webinar, presenters will briefly review the various factors that can influence whether or not participants enroll and continue to engage in HIV prevention interventions and studies. Then, presenters will discuss strategies, tools, and tips that may be useful for improving recruitment and/or retention efforts in clinical, community-based, and research projects focused on HIV prevention. This discussion will include real-world case studies highlighting strategies that have been successful in the presenters’ own Chicago-based projects.
This webinar is being provided by the Center for the Evaluation of HIV Prevention Programs in Chicago, a collaborative project between Northwestern University and the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, supported by the Chicago Department of Public Health.
