|Authors||Hindley, E, Makela, P. and Shepperd, S|
Introduction: Ethical recruitment of patients to a clinical trial assumes uncertainty about advantages and disadvantages of the treatment modalities, or ‘equipoise’. This study considers the concept of uncertainty in a multicentre randomised controlled trial (RCT) of a complex intervention: Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) in a hospital or hospital at home (HAH) setting. We aimed to identify factors influencing recruitment, which may ultimately affect trial success.
