By Mark Summers, President of Patient Engagement, WCG
Enrollment Assistants™ are the heart of WCG’s recruitment and enrollment services. If you’ve spent more than 10 minutes with me, you’ve likely heard me sing their praises. They recruit and screen potential study volunteers, conduct patient chart reviews, field and evaluate referrals, conduct community outreach, describe trial protocols to patients, explain consent and guide qualified candidates to enrollment. They ease site burden and increase patient engagement. I could go on.
As my colleagues and I talk to sponsors, site staff, and Investigators about the use of on-the-ground recruitment support, we run into some very good, and common questions. I'd like to answer a few here.
