Best Practices in Patient Recruitment


Patient recruitment is a primary concern of the clinical trial industry. Every day that a clinical trial goes beyond its intended deadline the sponsor organization could lose hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in sales. Sponsors, CROs, and sites engage various means to reach key milestones on time and within budget.

To provide the best perspective on this critical topic, ISR gathered opinions from key decision-makers at three different types of stakeholder organizations: sponsors, CROs, and sites. Further, we explored the increasingly important role of specialized patient recruitment firms by examining their market penetration, value, and performance.
