As applicable, clearly outline the number of sites that will be involved in recruitment and the final recruitment target. The use of a project timeline that tracks expected recruitment over the research period, the potential number of participants that would meet the inclusion criteria, and experience with recruiting this population are highly recommended. Applicants are also encouraged to consider whether the proposed recruitment target is adequate, or whether there is a potential to increase the target sample size, to power secondary outcomes and heterogeneity of treatment effects (HTE) adequately, if proposed.
