Social Media for Research Recruitment: Ethical and Practical Aspects

Social media continues to prove a promising recruitment mechanism for clinical research, but there is still a lack of regulatory and ethical guidance available to guide the design and review of social media recruitment techniques.

In this webinar, Luke Gelinas, IRB Chairperson at Advarra, addresses ethical and practical issues involved with social media recruitment. He advances a pragmatic method for IRB review using case studies to illustrate how ethical principles can be applied. He also identifies ways to navigate potentially novel aspects of social media recruitment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Outline the empirical literature on social media’s effectiveness as a research recruitment tool
  • Apply sound methodology for designing and reviewing social media recruitment techniques
  • Describe how the ethical principles of respect for privacy and investigator transparency apply in the social media context
  • Explain potentially novel aspects of social media recruitment, including compliance with website policies and “Terms of Use,” recruiting from the online networks of current or potential participants, and managing online participant communication
