Putting Patients and Sites at the Center of Your Clinical Trial

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical, Patient Recruitment & Retention, Medical Device, Medical Device Clinical Trials,
  • Wednesday, April 25, 2018

This webinar will focus on ways that you can center/focus your clinical trial on the needs of the patient and the site throughout your clinical trial.

Considerations during the start-up, conduct and closeout phase will be examined and how these can play a vital role in recruiting and retaining patients throughout the course of the study. In addition to things that organizations can do to focus on the patient and the site, webinar attendees will get to hear from a Principal Investigator about his experience using SureSource and how its use, within his site, has benefited both himself and his site operations.

Further, attendees will learn about ways to engage with clinical trial patients in ways that enable better retention and engaged involvement in the study.
