Tips for Finding Volunteers for Your Clinical Trial

If you are running a clinical trial, you are most likely looking to find volunteers to participate in the study. A clinical trial is a powerful way for organizations to learn more about new treatments and test their effectiveness. Many clinical trials have a monetary value attached to them. The more money that you can recoup from the study, the more likely it is that you will be able to continue running the trial and recruiting more volunteers. It would help if you kept in mind several factors when deciding how to find the most volunteers for your clinical practice.

Set Up Your Clinical Trial


First of all, you will want to choose a proper study for your patients. There are many categories of clinical trials that you can choose from. One of the most common types is a randomized, double-blind trial. This type of trial uses treatment and a placebo group. In a randomized, double-blind trial, neither the study doctor nor the participants know who is receiving which drug and why. To be fit to participate in a clinical trial, you will need to either complete or be within 30 days of completion of a randomized, double-blind study.

Be Transparent About Your Recruitment Process


It is crucial to remember that many patients may decline to participate in a clinical trial based on many different considerations. You will also want to be transparent about the recruitment process when setting up your clinical practice.

Use a Patient Recruitment Company


When you choose to work with a patient recruitment company, you will want to make sure that you operate with a trustworthy, reliable source. You will want to ensure that the company is registered with the appropriate authorities and is operating under the correct legal framework. Some patient recruitment companies in Africa act as sales agents for certain pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Make Sure Your Trial Is Registered With the National Health Service


One of the most important things you can do to help your patients get the best possible treatment is to register your clinical trial with the National Health Service (NHS). A registered test will ensure that you follow the regulations and are legally compliant to conduct your practice. To be legally compliant, you will need to keep several records regarding your trial, including the identification and location of all the patients enrolled in the trial, the title and location of all the study facilities, the identification and location of all the staff members involved in the study, and the details of the treatments and the reasons for the treatment given to each patient.


You can choose several actions to find volunteers for your clinical trial. Depending on your research goal and the volunteers that you are looking to recruit, there are some diverse choices that you can choose from.
