Slow patient recruitment and poor retention cause recurrent nightmares and perpetual problems often resulting in missing recruitment milestones. The cost of these delays represents hundreds of thousands of dollars for drug and device developers. By recognizing this issue, early detailed feasibility can provide planning and contingency solutions that are focused on reducing the impact of delayed recruitment. Furthermore understanding what motivates investigators and patients to actively participate in clinical studies and how patient recruitment strategies and materials can support all stakeholders to complete studies on time are critical aspects of clinical study delivery planning.
During this presentation, an experienced Premier Research feasibility and patient recruitment specialist, reviewed feasibility approaches to address protocol evaluation as well as addressed influences on country selection, site distribution and patient recruitment strategies to provide for more effective clinical trial planning and conduct.
