CHEER Research Program: Participant Recruitment

In this module, you will spend some time considering how (participant) recruitment in child health
research differs from recruitment in adult research.


This competency-based online module was created collaboratively by the Office for Professional Development and Educational Scholarship (Queen’s University), the CHEER Patient and Family Advisory Committee, and the CHEER Educational working group. With special thanks to everyone who contributed to the content of the modules for their hard work and dedication to the CHEER project. Without their commitment and invaluable expertise, the creation of these modules would not have been possible.

This project is possible thanks to funding from the CIHR Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health and the CIHR Institute of Genetics. CHEER is led by Clinical Trials Ontario and the Maternal Infant Child and Youth Research Network, in partnership with the Queen’s University Faculty of Health Sciences, Office for Professional Development and Educational Scholarship, and investigators and collaborators across the country.
