AbstractThe article presents a research study concerning the impact of financial incentives for a research team on study participant recruitment of parents with children in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The authors report that recruitment of NICU research participants is difficult because multiple clinical trials desire the same study population and the NICU experience is a time of stress and anxiety for parents.
