Given hectic schedules and competing priorities, including clinical care-, administrative- , and research-related activities, recruitment for a single study is often sidetracked, even given the best of site staff intentions. Add to that one or two recruitment challenges, such as a lengthy enrollment period for a population with a low incidence, a projected high screen-failure rate, and / or an incredibly crowded treatment landscape, and you can readily intuit that you will need a way to make sure that recruitment for your study stays front and center.

Collaboration Key to Advancing Clinical Trial Research

BBK Worldwide, a global leader in patient recruitment, has launched Health Info Gizmo (the Gizmo), a mobile vehicle used to inform, educate, and engage patient audiences about clinical trials, and in the process, foster long-term relationships between advocacy groups and the pharmaceutical industry. By leveraging the power of collaboration, the Gizmo provides clinical trial sponsors with opportunities to engage and partner with patient advocacy organizations to advance clinical research. “Advocacy groups are hesitant to assist in the promotion of clinical trials for fear that their involvement may smatter of endorsement of one company or therapeutic direction over another,” said Aaron B. Fleishman, leader of BBK’s social innovation group. “The interesting dilemma is that, more than ever, advocacy groups want to help their constituencies by encouraging awareness of clinical trials.”
