Information for Centres

Recruitment Tips for Centres

  • Identify potential participants early in the treatment pathway through flagging/screening at MDT meetings and/or by screening weekly clinic lists. Brief slide sets for introducing the trial at MDTs are available in the members area.
  • A Patient Introductory Leaflet is now available to introduce patients to the trial ahead of (potentially) approaching them later in their treatment pathway.
  • Tracking potential participants through their treatment can also be helpful (for example, using a spreadsheet recording treatment appointments which can be regularly reviewed). Please see here for an example of a screening log for the Upper GI cohort.
  • Liaise with Clinical Nurse Specialists in surgical clinics to see if potential participants are willing to be contacted. If a patient is not seen in clinic, the Participant Information Sheet (PIS) can be posted, a cover letter is now available for this.
  • Check the FAQs in the members area for answers to some common eligibility queries.
