Webinar: Understanding and Improving Participant Retention in Long-Term Outcome Studies

On February 20, Dale Needham, FCPA, MD, PhD hosted a webinar discussing methods to help improve participant retention rates in longitudinal follow-up studies. Dr. Needham and his team conducted 3 separate studies focused on learning best practices in the field of participant retention methods. Those studies informed the development of a free toolbox of cohort retention tools for use by researchers in the field. Details of those studies and the free cohort retention tools and resources were presented.

For those who were unable to participate, the slides and a link to the recording are posted below. You may contact Dr. Needham at improveLTO@jhmi.edu for additional information.
