Abstract

This work aims to investigate whether there are reports in the literature about the role of the recruiter's characteristics on participation in research projects focused on gestational women.

A bibliographic search was performed in SCIELO, Redalyc, Latindex, MEDLINE (through PubMed), SCOPUS and Web of Knowledge of articles published in English or Spanish with the search  terms: Participation in research, informed consent, motivation and influence, reasons to participate in clinical research, recruitment characteristics.

We conclude that sociodemographic characteristics and perception of risk are important in the decision- making process of pregnant women to decide a positive answer when being asked to participate in a clinical trial.
