Recruitment challenges for low-risk health system intervention trials in older adults: a case study.
Researchers assessed factors associated with trial participation in the context of a low-risk intervention intended to reduce adverse drug events in recently hospitalized older adults. They found that recruiting older adults recently discharged from the hospital to participate in trials of low-risk, system-level interventions was challenging and may under-enroll the oldest individuals and those potentially at the highest risk for adverse events, limiting generalizability of study findings.
