Step 1. Choose feasibility vs. recruitment search. Feasibility shows counts rounded to the nearest 10 and does not allow any ability to contact volunteers.
Upon selecting a recruitment search, the researcher is shown a list of instructions.
Filter the database for your inclusion/exclusion criteria
Review anonymous health profiles to finalize list of potential ‘matches’ to contact with the study’s initial recruitment message. Researchers can view any additional entries or comments that volunteers voluntarily included in their ResearchMatch Volunteer profile (optional entry).
Random Selection Tool The random selection feature allows a researcher to minimize selection bias by randomly selecting a subset of volunteers to receive the recruitment message. When the researcher is ready to contact more volunteers, he can randomly select additional volunteers from the remaining pool without fear of recontact due to ResearchMatch’s embedded functional capacity to keep track of who’s been contacted.
