CenterWatch to Introduce Key Findings from Surveys on Physician Referrals to Clinical Trials and Clinical Trial Volunteer Experiences at DIA Meeting
Date:6/18/2009

CenterWatch will present never-before released results from two annual surveys at the upcoming DIA Meeting in San Diego, Calif.

Boston, Mass. (PRWEB) June 18, 2009 -- CenterWatch, a global source for clinical trials information, will present never-before released results from two annual surveys aimed at better understanding physician referrals to clinical trials and study volunteer experiences at DIA's 45th Annual Meeting, June 22-24, 2009, in San Diego, Calif.

CenterWatch's Director of Market Research, Mary Jo Lamberti, Ph.D., will present analysis of 250 physician responses worldwide focusing on factors surrounding physicians' comfort level with referring patients into trials. Her findings will include concerns about trial location, accessibility of a trial for a patient, and general knowledge about a patient's particular disease.

From the volunteer viewpoint, Paul Dewberry, Senior Research Analyst at CenterWatch, will discuss patient experiences in trials across all disease states and will disclose new data on trial participation compensation for study volunteers, which was not previously captured on prior years' surveys. Responses were gathered from approximately 670 volunteers who participated in phase I-IIIb studies, the largest response since the benchmark survey was first released in 2004.

"This year we received more volunteer responses than any other. Additionally, the responses to open-ended questions were superior in quality," Lamberti said. "Patients were more willing to give detailed information which has resulted in much better data and subsequent analysis."
