Patient recruitment. Although a short, simple phrase, this simple phrase can become the source of anyone’s stress. As most in the clinical research industry certainly know, obtaining participants for a clinical trial is not simply having a clinical trial available to offer. Instead, patient recruitment requires well thought out clinical trial recruitment strategies.

When not executed effectively, patient recruitment has the potential to delay just about any clinical trial. In fact, on their website, The Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) cites that, “delays in patient recruitment for clinical trials account for an average of 4.6 months lost per trial,” which is on average, “an annual cumulative loss of 26 years for each company” (Beasely, “Recruiting” 2006). To help combat this, those involved in clinical research should take advantage of the patient recruitment and clinical trial services offered by Clinical List America.
