It is important that sponsors leverage different methods of study awareness such as broad-based communications to reach patients. These methods may include sending letters, emails and newsletters to patient advocacy groups’ member databases, and creating websites and social media posts to post study information. Additionally, hosting informational meetings to walk through study participation and providing educational support materials for a greater understanding of the study are useful strategies for recruiting patients.
Once recruited into a clinical study, it then becomes paramount to provide ongoing support and reassurance by focusing on the needs and concerns of the patient and caregivers. This type of tailored support will lead to greater retention on studies, which leads to the collection of needed data for primary endpoints and then ultimately faster therapies to market.
