Clinical Trials, Life Sciences, Patient Recruitment & Retention,
  • Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Protocol design can have a significant impact on patient engagement and clinical trial performance. In this live webinar, explore the findings of a recent scholarly study conducted by the Center for the Study of Drug Development (CSDD) at Tufts University School of Medicine which characterize current protocol design practices and their effects on study volunteer experience and clinical trial performance.

Some of the topics that will be covered by our featured speaker include:

  • Benchmarks on industry-funded clinical trial protocol scope and structure
  • Overall and study-specific study timelines
  • Patient recruitment and retention rates
  • Study volunteer participation experience
  • New practices in protocol design

Finally, the speaker will provide insights on how small, medium and large sponsors can implement these new practices to optimize patient engagement, lower clinical cost and accelerate clinical trial speed.
