Pediatric Clinical Trials: Patient Recruitment and Retention Best Practices, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 04, 2015) - Join industry expert Nikki Fink, Director of Patient Access and Retention Services at PRA Health Sciences, as she discusses best practices for patient recruitment and retention for pediatric clinical studies. The live broadcast takes place on Monday, March 23, 2015 at 11am EDT (3pm GMT).

Pediatric clinical trials involving infants, children, and adolescents is, in some respects, more challenging than research involving adults. While clinical trial enrollment is already challenging, the aspects of parental involvement, family decision making and supporting the physical and emotional needs of children and caregivers add to the many enrollment complexities faced by pediatric trials today.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about techniques and see real-life examples used to improve the pediatric trial experience for all stakeholders involved.

Key topics include:

  • Defining and understanding the mindsets of parents and children regarding clinical research and trial opportunities
  • Developing successful communication and customer service strategies for parents, caregivers and children
  • Providing recruitment awareness and education, as well as compliance, retention, and appreciation support to pediatric trial participants
