This study described the recruitment strategy for a two-state randomized trial testing two intervention approaches for increasing pharmacy-based referrals to tobacco cessation quitlines. Results showed that to achieve the target sample size of 64 study sites, it required contacting 150 pharmacies. Pharmacies that declined to participate most often cited time constraints as the primary reason. The authors concluded that community pharmacy personnel are receptive to participation in multisite tobacco cessation clinical research trials. However, execution of a representative sampling and recruitment scheme in this case was a very time and labor intensive process.
