Recruitment to randomised clinical trials (RCTs) can be challenging. Patient preferences for treatment can hinder recruitment, prevent trial completion, and lead to post randomisation dropout. An understanding of the factors which influence preference for treatment is important if effective strategies to improve and facilitate recruitment and informed consent are to be developed. Existing systematic reviews have largely focused on preferences within adult RCTs and little is known about preference in pediatric trials.
