What does taking part involve for a host trial?

If you are in the process of conducting a trial and are interested in collaborating with MRC START to host a nested recruitment trial, please contact us.

We have a streamlined process for nested recruitment trials, which involves the following:

  • Initial discussions to check compatibility between the host trial, and our MRC START recruitment interventions
  • Agreement with host trial on the most suitable recruitment intervention
  • Discussion of options for delivering the nested trial

Hosting a nested recruitment trial does involve some additional work, usually for trial managers, but our streamlined process is designed to minimise burden on trial teams. Our standardised process has the benefits of significant preliminary development and testing.
