BBK Shop Talk: Are Your Sites Ready?

SRRI large resized 600Succeeding at anything involves a measure of readiness, and it’s no different with clinical trial recruitment. We’ve written several blogs on patient retention, patient engagement, and patient education when it comes to clinical trials. The same practice applies to keeping sites engaged in your study. Thinking back to one of our recent BBK shop talk articles, there is a lot of time, effort and careful planning involved in building a successful clinical trial campaign. Part of that is preparing your sites for your study.

Before recruitment, sites must have:

  • The staff to accommodate the enrollment process
  • Knowledge in protocol-specific criteria
  • Defined roles and responsibilities for conducting the trial
  • Records and report management
  • Just to name a few…

That’s why we developed the Site Recruitment Readiness Index. Let’s dive into why it’s important to prepare your sites from the patient, site and sponsor perspective

For the Patient:

Our Site Recruitment Readiness Index ensures a smoother enrollment process for patients since sponsors, CROs, and sites are prepared to recruit and enroll them. By ensuring that sites are staffed and have the proper resources, they are better able to address the needs of patients and provide them the timely responses they deserve.

For The Sponsor:

Site Recruitment Readiness Index saves sponsors time and money by eliminating redundancies and backtracking, and ensuring that all tasks are efficiently completed before enrollment.

For the Site:

Sites gain better support by aligning efforts of all those accountable for clinical trial enrollment success – including sponsors, site staff, monitors, CROs, CRAs, etc. As a result, duplication of efforts and backtracking is eliminated, leading the way to a faster, smoother enrollment process.
