Report and share accrual experiences with others
Prepare and submit a summary of trial-specific accrual findings and lessons learned to key stakeholders
- If you have been using the principles AccrualNet™ shares, you have kept stakeholders engaged throughout the trial. Even if you have not engaged them as much as you would have liked, take the opportunity now. This stage of a trial is the time to close the communication loop and share lessons learned. Doing so shows your thoughtfulness, accountability, and dedication to the trial. Prepare a simple summary of accrual findings that focuses on both strengths and areas to improve for next time.
Share your experiences on AccrualNet™
- AccrualNet™ was created to give people just like you with trial recruitment responsibilities access to the literature, helpful tools, and each other. This trial has closed and you probably learned something that can help someone else, or asked a question that one of your peers is asking, too.
Document and submit your experiences and findings to journals and at professional meetings
- Add your experience to the field in a more formal way. When you contribute findings to the literature or make presentations to professional colleagues, it helps the field develop as a whole.
