About Event

OECT Summit - Study Feasibility & Patient Recruitment Retention

Event Overview

Study Feasibility and Patient recruitment&retention offer major challenges to the clinical researcher with potential for significant impact on timelines, budgets, and ultimately the scientific integrity of thetrial itself. Many factors affect the recruitment of patients and difficulty in finding suitable patients is driving the development of many innovative methods for accessing new patient groups. How the ‘Big Data’ can have a significant impact in clinical trials. The rise of social media means that new technologies and changing strategies for communication can be used to great effect to reach out to patients directly. Additionally outreach through patient advocate groups, social service agencies are becoming more important to communicate with patients viable for trial participation as well as for those already enrolled in clinical trials. How to maximise the benefit of this approach and ensure our regulatory obligations are appropriately met will be the subject of several sessions during the summit.
There will be sessions during the summit looking at getting feasibility right, performing risk assessment in a constructive way and considering the impact of on-site monitoring on patient recruitment and retention rates.
