Top 3 Failures in Digital Patient Recruitment
Clinical research is always delayed. Why? Patient recruitment is cited as the reason across the industry. This partly happens because the efforts put forth by Sponsors & CROs are often put together with less than ideal effort and forethought. Many people in charge of trials are often occupied with the millions of other duties that come with conducting a study. Here are the top 3 failures in digital patient recruitment we have seen from our years in patient recruitment:
Stop Losing Patients Today
Patient retention is a thing that often gets overlooked. Yet, it can be one of the largest reasons contributing to you losing patients in your trials, your practice and in your care. Luckily there are some quick and easy fixes Heather and I share.
How to Be Persuasive in Clinical Research
Being persuasive is important in any facet of life. Everyone has to “sell” something every day. This means selling why you should be selected for that promotion, why your kid should listen to you, or why you should go eat somewhere over another suggested place.
This applies to clinical research whether you are a coordinator talking to a patient, principal investigator negotiating a contract, or a clinical research associate trying to become a clinical trial manager.
This is why I want to cover the three components of persuasion according to Aristotle (Ethos, Pathos, and Logos.)
Why Patient's Don't Enroll into Trials
There's often a common reason that patients don't enroll into studies after they are found to be eligible. This has to do with the complexity of the consent forms are provided to them. Often times they can be intimidating to the patient because they don't understand all the lot of the medical jargon. In this episode we cover a way to simplify by repurposing techniques we already use elsewhere.
Patient Education - Metaphors & Analogies
Using metaphors and analogies is vital to helping a patient better understand their condition. This can mean the difference that they retain what you spoke to them about versus forgetting it instantly. It is our job as Healthcare communicators to break down complex topics for the patients. In this podcast recover some ways you can easily come up with metaphors of your own and some ideas as well.
