Identifying High-Performing Sites and Engaging Patients
One of the biggest challenges facing any clinical trial is how to identify the sites with the greatest potential to engage and retain patients. Applying decades of experience to the topic, Medpace experts will share considerations, lessons-learned and best practices for developing patient recruitment strategies to put you on the path for optimal success.
Key topics for discussion will include:
- Understanding and addressing the needs of the patient during protocol design is a critical first step
- Data-driven recruitment strategies and precautions. An abundance of de-identified healthcare data can lead to spurious conclusions; data-driven recruitment requires an analysis of trends, historical metrics, global practices, and anomalies to identify the best performers.
- Relationships with site staff and Key Opinion Leaders are essential to facilitate patient recruitment strategies
- Insight into internal site dynamics, standard of care and country-specific regulatory and cultural limitations are critical to inform a sound recruitment strategy.
