Patient accrual and enrollment onto clinical trials is a challenge for many research sites. Many barriers exist such as overly restrictive protocol eligibility criteria, logistical limitations, and lack of provider and patient education among many others. Is clinical trial accrual a challenge for your site?
Has your site established best practices to overcome challenges with clinical trial accrual? Will you share your best practices and strategies to overcome barriers?
Dr. Copur,Yes, enrollment is a major issue - and appreciate your consideration of the multiple factors. We (and our patients) wrestle with geographic distance to the site. As a result we've started to conduct trials via telemedicine, however struggle to have Sponsors agree with this model at times.What is your biggest struggle? Any helpful hints?Thanks,Lora
