As anyone involved in clinical research well knows, clinical trial patient recruitment is one of the most important site operations today. After all, if a site is unable to obtain enough qualified participants for a clinical trial, then the trial cannot move forward. However, often time sites can underestimate how many potential participants need to be reached in order to meet their qualified participant requirements, and in turn their patient recruitment efforts fall short. In fact, Clinical List America recently attended a session about patient recruitment on the site level at the 2013 ACRP Global Conference and Exhibition, and learned that in a 15-year study conducted by the session advisor, the number of incoming potential patients to patients actually randomized in a study was 10:1.
With that alarming statistic in mind, it is even easier to see the importance of executing effective clinical trial recruitment strategies. This is where Clinical List America comes in.
