The Pulse on Patient Recruitment by Ashley Tointon
Looking retrospectively, patient recruitment activities have evolved greatly. Unfortunately, some issues are cyclical and see resurgence from time to time. Sending in-person recruitment assistance to sites, leveraging patient advocacy outreach and the increased use of videos are just a few examples of valuable tactics that come in and out of popularity, much like recycled fashion. Is this because we don’t disseminate learning? Is it because we run out of new ideas to solve old issues? Realistically, there are many old patient recruitment problems that have yet to be properly solved. Two major issues yet to be solved are the awareness of clinical trials and how to engage with patients.
