Our Next Course:
Meeting the Challenges of Recruitment and Retention in Clinical Research (four-part webinar series)
Meeting the challenges of recruitment and retention in research can be a major pressure for those working in front line clinical research posts. These pressures are often driven by recruitment targets linked to ongoing funding for research positions. This four-part webinar series will focus on systems and processes that enhance recruitment to your portfolio. We will also discuss how and where to focus you efforts when planning clinical trials that will help recruitment once a study is open. We will explore how to engage with the wider team and explore the value of relationship building as core business in clinical research. By the end of the series, you will also have a better understanding of the psychology behind why people participate in clinical research and why they don’t. This webinar series will focus on: The role of the research practitioner in recruiting and retaining participants in clinical research. What motivates people to participate in research and how to consider these motivators in your research? Strategies for promoting recruitment and retention. Making systems and relationships the focus of successful recruitment. Who you can engage to help raise awareness of the importance of clinical research and the value it brings to patients. Course material will be delivered through presentations, interactive online exercises and personal reflection.
