    The Real Truth About Patient Recruitment & Retention

    While centralized patient recruitment services have been around for over a decade, many trial sponsors do not have a clear understanding of what these services entail, much less what to expect in terms of a Return On Investment.

    This webinar uses metrics-driven case studies across multiple therapeutic areas to provide attendees with objective data supporting the fact that centralized patient recruitment can reduce clinical enrollment timelines by 50% or more when properly executed.

    Important patient recruitment topics covered include: current tactics and social media trends; patient privacy and data handling; how protocol I/E drives price; how to avoid outrageous advertising fees; and more.
