dc.description.abstractBackground Despite noble advancements in clinical research recruitment. Ethnic minorities continue to be disproportionately represented. Identifying variables that contribute to increased participation in such trials can provide valuable insight into the development of recruitment materials for future trials. The purpose of this research is to evaluate participant buy-in and participant volume; and to assess whether disease duration impacts one’s decision to participate in the trial. Methods This study compares the use of two introductory scripts used during telephone interviews for screening potential subjects for LIFT Diabetes, a randomized controlled trial designed to investigate the effects of delivering contrasting interventions: a community-based intensive lifestyle program and a clinic-based enhanced diabetes self-management program. Results The recruitment scripts employed in this study varies in results. There is evidence to suggest that enticing recruitment scripts leads to increased participant buy-in and agreement to participate. Conclusion When age is applied to the findings herein, there is ample support for the belief that older adults are more likely to favor detailed study information when deciding to participate in clinical trials. This justifies further research and opens the door for clinical applications of these findings.en_US
