A new low cost tool to recruit patients for research studies in general practice
Recruiting patients for research studies conducted in, or in association with, general practice is usually difficult, expensive and time consuming, and this can cause research studies to fail. Well-intentioned but busy GPs, practice nurses and practice staff who agree to help to recruit patients often forgot to approach patients who are potentially eligible for inclusion in research studies.
Professor Nigel Stocks and Dr Oliver Franks have worked with Dr Anton Knieriemen, who is a GP in Melbourne and the author of the Doctors’ Control Panel software, to develop a special purpose version called DCP.Recruit that partly automates the processes of identifying patients who are potentially eligible for a study and inviting them in to the study.
