Failure to recruit enough patients is one of the top reasons why clinical trials fail, which is why UC BRAID has assembled specialists in the field of participant recruitment to partner on this problem. Their team's work makes it easier for investigators to leverage recruitment capabilities in the electronic health record, conduct multisite recruitment, and obtain IRB approval for recruitment methods and materials. UC BRAID’s efforts in this area include: improving the cost, efficiency, and effectiveness of recruitment approaches; positioning member institutions to be attractive for research grant dollars, both locally and with multi-center studies and trials; and developing capabilities to forge and respond to new public/private partnerships. UC BRAID's CTSA participant recruitment initiatives span across UC Los Angeles, UC Irvine, UC Davis, UC San Francisco, UC San Diego, and Stanford University.
