Qualitative Research Integrated within Trials (QuinteT)

The QuinteT team of researchers pioneer qualitative approaches to optimise recruitment and informed consent to randomised controlled trials (RCTs).

To date, the team’s principal innovation is the QuinteT Recruitment Intervention (QRI). Developed by QuinteT team lead Professor Jenny Donovan, the aim of the QRI is to understand RCT recruitment processes and difficulties, suggest improvements and then work with RCT Chief Investigators to implement these. Additionally, we have now developed a version of the intervention (QRI-Two) for RCTs already underway with enrolment shortfalls. We also deliver a range of QRI-Informed recruiter training

The QuinteT researchers use a range of quantitative and qualitative methods.  If you would like to discuss collaboration with us, please contact us
