This paper presents an adapted version of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology Model to be utilised as a validation tool of captured user needs and requirements of particular interactive software technologies, within the framework of Clinical Trial Management Systems (CTMS). In particular, this model is used to assess the users’ acceptance and technology adoption of specific CTMS modules of the electronic Primary Care Research Network (ePCRN) Clinical Trial Management Framework System. We present modifications on the variable of the key constructs of UTAUT, while we introduce our own moderating factors for the model in the context of validating an eligibility criteria tool for primary care and community-based clinical research.
