Centralized Recruitment

Centralized Recruitment (CR) consists of Toronto Rehabilitation Institute's team of skilled Patient Research Liaisons (PRLs). Central Recruitment helps to ensure that our patients have equal access to research, and our researchers have equal access to patients. CR can help researchers achieve their sample size, and provides opportunities for interested inpatients to participate in research. 

CR needs line items in your grants to pay for recruitment. Please download the Centralized Recruitment Calculator to determine your recruiting cost estimate. Please submit a screenshot of the calculator results with your CAPCR submission. Please contact  Louise.Brisbois@uhn.ca  for assistance with completion of the CR Calculator. A finalized CR Calculator must be submitted with your CAPCR application if recruiting inpatients at TRI.
