Best Practices in Patient Recruitment and Retention for Diabetes Trials, New Life Science Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Date:11/8/2013

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 08, 2013

Despite the growing prevalence of diabetes around the world, clinical trials face significant recruitment challenges brought on by increasing competition for patients, eligibility criteria and stricter regulatory requirements. Well over 200 drugs are currently in development for diabetes and related conditions. Given this level of drug development activity, as many as 500,000 patients are needed to enroll in these trials. To reduce the risk of costly enrollment delays, tailored recruitment strategies need to proactively address protocol challenges, consider patient motivations and complement local recruitment practices.

Missing data may also have costly consequences at the end of a study. Retention of patients has been recently highlighted by regulatory pressures to collect final status on outcomes trials. To reduce the risk of dropout or lost to follow-up, addressing protocol challenges up front may help to mitigate this risk. Retention strategies should be designed to reduce barriers to enrollment, promote protocol compliance and ensure a means of follow up with patients.

The discussion will include ways to develop targeted strategies with the potential to increase enrollment rates and reduce lost to follow-up by:

  •     Using patient insights to identify patient motivations and anticipate protocol challenges.
  •     Assessing site potential and leveraging site intelligence to customize strategies to the local level.
  •     Exploring of the use of digital outreach and engagement tactics.
