The goal of this guidance document is to provide researchers a brief introduction to tools aimed at direct- to-consumer recruitment to research networks and trials. While the review isn’t a comprehensive landscape analysis of the entire tool domain, it’s an accurate snapshot of tool development and utilization across PCORnet and the TIN in 2017–2018. Many of the tools presented and lessons learned are still in development, but this document will provide a useful primer for researchers seeking guidance and examples of direct-to-consumer recruitment.
