AAG SECG presents: Recruitment Strategies for Older Populations




Please note that we will be recording this webinar and a link to that
recording together with a pdf of the slide presentations (subject to the
consent of our presenters) will be sent to all registrants after the event.


Participant recruitment can be a lengthy, and often challenging process with the potential to influence study timelines and budgets. Recruitment of older populations presents yet another layer of complexity.

This webinar will offer valuable insight and tips on how to make the most of your recruitment strategies, and how to best capture older participants.

Three presenters from across the field of ageing will share their experience, tips and advice for recruiting older populations for community engagement projects, observational studies and clinical trials.

Participants will:

  • Hear from successful researchers in ageing about their experiences recruiting older people
  • Learn about the strengths and weaknesses of different recruitment methods, including recruitment companies
  • Identify strategies best suited to your research and population of interest

Important notice regarding our webinars

AAG has been successfully running these webinars for number of years now. However we have noticed recently that increasing numbers of our registrants are experiencing difficulties when trying to join the online event.

In all cases this is as a result of the IT set-up at your end. Healthcare and academic workplaces are introducing increasing levels of security to guard against viruses and data theft. Some of those security measures are disrupting the connection to our Go-to-Training Software. There are also some situations where registrants need to make adjustments to the set-up of their home IT before they can successfully join.

It is therefore vitally important that you test your connection before the day of the event.

We are a small organisation in terms of employed staff and on the day of the event most of our resources are dedicated to delivering the webinar, we cannot therefore promise to be available to help you with connection enquiries either just before or after the event has actually started.

Once you complete the registrations process below you will get two e-mails. One from us confirming registration and the other from GoToTraining (the software that we use for our webinars) from this sender address customercare@gototraining.com.

Recently Microsoft Outlook has been consigning these important emails to junk or spam. You need this second email in order to participate in the event, it contains the link that you need to join. Please ensure that you retrieve the item from spam/junk and "Report as not junk". Some of you may have to ask your IT departments for help in unblocking this address.

Apologies for this potential inconvenience but we are at the mercy of the IT industry in all this.
