ABSTRACT
The article explores the experiences of two nurse researchers on using clinical and research databases to find potential participants for research and discusses implications for conduct of research and its impact on response rates. It emphasizes the importance of sample size to clinical research design in order to determine the time and funding required to conduct a study. The authors stress the need for healthcare researchers to know the limitations of databases and allocate enough time for data preparation prior to sampling.
