Effective and efficient clinical trial recruitment remains a fundamental challenge for ultimate study success. Sponsors and sites have turned to numerous strategies to improve recruitment and keep patients engaged, with varying results. While the goal remains the same – to get adequate numbers of eligible candidates enrolled as quickly as possible – many fail to consider that the solution may be as simple as considering the human factors faced by patients as they explore possibilities of research participation.
Clinical trial recruitment is certainly not easy. That said, neither is clinical trial participation for patients, nor the work done to manage the process by study sites. Possible solutions with the most potential to finally crack the code on improving study recruitment lie in the simple need to consider and care about the experiences of those involved.
