Recruitment & Retention Services
Individual Recruitment and Retention Consultations
Our team of experts directed by Drs. Matthews, Castillo, and Atkins provide one-to-one consultations services focusing on research methods, recruitment and retention plans, using culturally appropriate engagement strategies and identifying and overcoming barriers to participant engagement. We also provide expanded services regarding evidence-based community engagement approaches to promote the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based health programs. Additionally, we can construct dissemination and implementation plans that promote community engagement and further recruitment.
Assistance Developing Recruitment Materials
We can provide feedback and input either one-on-one or through our Community Engagement Advisory Board to guide the development of recruitment and retention tools (e.g. flyers, advertisments) specifically aimed at the population of interest. Our Recruitment Toolbox also provides UIC and UI Health branded flyer templates for a variety of age and ethnic demographics.
