Recruiting is hard!

Recruiting participants is the most time-consuming, expensive, and difficult part of research.

Recruitment often takes longer than anticipated, incur higher costs than expected, and scientists routinely recruit less participants than they require.

More than 35% of research studies recruit less than 75% of their planned sample, and this reduction in the sample size leads to reductions in the statistical power of the study.

Studies that succeed in recruiting large numbers of patients, participation rates are still very low; only 3-20% of the eligible participant pool chooses to participate.

More than 50% of researchers use more than one recruiting approach to find potential participants, which is extremely resource and time consuming.
