Patient Enrollment in Oncology Clinical Trials – Challenges & Best Solutions: 28th Nov 2012; 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM US EST

Patient Recruitment Oncology
Patient enrollment has always been a challenge in clinical trials, in general and it is more so in oncology clinical trials. Oncology clinical trials take longer time than other therapeutic areas primarily due to delays in patient enrollment. In US, the adult participation in cancer clinical trials remains around 3% with even lower participation rates among ethnic, racial minorities and elderly people. Sponsors/CROs and sites increasingly struggle to reach enrollment targets due to a variety of reasons including nature of disease itself. However, understanding, analyzing these challenges & barriers in patient enrollment in oncology trials and addressing them with thoughtful, strategic, result-oriented plans & procedures is the key to success. Keeping this perspective in mind this webinar will cover –

  • Understanding challenges around patient enrollment  in oncology clinical trials
  • Key policies and procedures  that sites can do to enhance enrollment  in oncology CTs
  • Practical approaches for community engagement in oncology CTs
