Abstract

Key differences with successful prevalence recruitment strategies highlight four main issues to consider when recruiting participants from primary care into iCBT studies - lack of equipoise, a need for an assertive approach, coding of depression in GP databases and help seeking behaviour in depression which can all act as potential contributors to failure to recruit. However other non-primary care recruitment methods, such as the use of media channels, which are already shown to be effective in non-primary care settings should be considered if these methods more accurately target the population who would be willing to adopt iCBT more generally.
