For a clinical trial to proceed smoothly, meet its milestones on schedule and produce the best results, it is vital that both the research sites conducting the study and the participating patients remain thoroughly involved and engaged, from the study startup to its conclusion. Advanced Clinical has assembled two teams of industry-leading experts to help your next clinical trial achieve these goals: a patient recruitment services team, focused specifically on enrolling, engaging and retaining the right participants for your study, and a site engagement team, dedicated to developing authentic long-term relationships with principal investigators and their site staff.

Clinical Trial Site Engagement

Research sites are extremely important to the success of your trial. Advanced Clinical recognizes that having site staff fully engaged in a trial can make all the difference in patient enrollment and retention. Our clinical site engagement team understands the challenges sites face — especially in the world shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led the industry to rethink the way trials are conducted through decentralized models. We will work with your team to:

  • Identify the best sites for your study, with the right research experience and access to the right patient population
  • Collect feasibility feedback and incorporate that information into a clinical trial project plan
  • Ensure the startup process is easy and engaging for sites
  • Provide appropriate training and information at the beginning of the trial and throughout the program
  • Support the sites with patient recruitment, engagement and retention services, strategies and collateral
  • Serve as a resource throughout the program for any feedback or requests
