Recruitment Toolkit

The following toolkit is designed to assist New IDEAS dementia practices with connecting to potential participants and other providers in their communities regarding the New IDEAS Study. Additional tools will be made available throughout the duration of the study. Please review the New IDEAS Study Advertising Policy prior to use of the materials below.

There are three broad uses for the toolkit: 

  1. Patient-facing recruitment and informational materials. These materials have been approved for use by the study's IRB of record, Advarra Inc.
  2. Educational and training resources for dementia practices to learn best practices in recruitment of study participants, specifically in under-represented minority populations.
  3. Customizable press releases for local media outlets and physician-to-physician emails to increase awareness of New IDEAS within communities.

The patient recruitment materials included in this toolkit are approved by the New IDEAS Study Team and the central IRB, Advarra. Since the New IDEAS Study advertising policy requires all marketing material to be approved, use of the items in this toolkit decreases individual site effort for marketing development, approval and implementation. The use of unapproved materials to recruit for New IDEAS could result in removal of a participating site from the study.
