Great conversations happening already! This is something that we will discuss a lot throughout the course. Stakeholder engagement is not about recruitment or retention in a trial. However, a sign of good stakeholder engagement is enrollment numbers.
Bamidele- what are the issues participants are facing? Are you enrolling a key population so discrimination or stigma is an issue? Or is the site itself difficult to access? What about the community’s perception of research? All of these and more will factor into a participants ability and desire to stay enrolled in a trial.
