For Study Staff

Research staff are on the front lines of research and play a pivotal role in ensuring older adults are included in research studies. The 5Ts Framework provides a systematic approach to help research staff anticipate and address common barriers to research participation. 

Research staff, including anyone who supports research activities, can use this website to:

  • Find and print practical guidance for recruiting older adults by searching the 5Ts recommendations 
  • Narrow the list to relevant recommendations by filtering for 'study setting' or 'activity'
  • Plan for challenges specific to your study by downloading and completing the 5Ts Inclusion Worksheet with your team 
  • Share success stories or other needs by contacting the 5Ts team 
  • Hear about new developments by reading 5Ts News
