Recruiting Strategies for Clinical Trials

January 01, 2003

Six years ago, our department of a large academic research center was having difficulty enrolling enough subjects in osteoporosis studies. We wanted to expand into a variety of trials and increase the number of participants. Despite our experience and expertise, our enrollments were down. We wondered if the pool of eligible participants was shrinking, if our competition was doing a better job than we were, or if we needed to modify our project management style.
