Increasing Access to Clinical Research Using an Innovative Mobile Recruitment Approach: The (MoRe) Concept

Last updated

Share Print

Participation in clinical research is a gateway to novel therapies that are intended to address current global health issues. We developed and piloted Mobile Recruitment (MoRe) units at 7 VA medical centers that were study sites for the Million Veteran Program (MVP) study, a high-volume, observational cohort study and mega biobank in the VA health care system. We employed this recruitment strategy to address three common barriers to clinical research participation: 1) research participant travel burden, 2) participant access to study opportunities, and 3) low participant enrollment.

This innovation is replicating across multiple facilities as its impact continues to be validated. See more replicating innovations.
