Successful Pediatric Clinical Study Recruitment Achieved by WCCT Global
COSTA MESA, Calif., April 26, 2013/PRWeb/–Contract Research Organization, WCCT Global, announced their overwhelming success in recruitment for multiple pediatric clinical studies today. In the past, recruiting for a pediatric clinical study was difficult to execute because there were very limited ways to establish relationships with the parent population groups. The main difficulty was first locating the children and then having to gain the trust of the parents. In order to gain the trust of the parents, we had to then educate them on what is entailed in a pediatric clinical study. Usually, this process could take months and the interactions were mostly over the phone. These difficulties have become significantly reduced due to WCCT Global’ s Recruitment Management Tool (RMT).
A good example of WCCT Global’ s RMT success was on the most recent completed pediatric clinical study. The study required randomizing 14 children between the ages of 11-17 who suffer from Allergic Rhinitis. The study had strict criteria and required multiple PK draws in a 24-hour period over two confinement periods. WCCT Global was able to fully locate and randomize all 14 pediatric subjects using their RMT process. WCCT Global’s Site Director Lester Galan stated, “the speed and retention of the recruitment for this study can be reflected on the power of our recruitment process.” The recruitment efforts for any study are one of the most important aspects to conducting a clinical study. Pediatric clinical study recruitment has become extremely efficient due to the recruitment marketing tactics of WCCT Global.
More about WCCT Global’s RMT:
The WCCT Global RMT consists of a proprietary algorithm which combines multiple web technologies that enables recruiters to target specific patients needed for any project. Any geographic region or diagnostic category can be targeted using the RMT. This allows recruiters to be centrally located while recruiting nationally, thus, using fewer resources and shortening overall recruitment times. The RMT can be completely customized to optimize any recruitment campaign. The process was developed to streamline recruitment efforts in order to speed up completion of any study. WCCT Global’s RMT also allows sponsors freedom from managing recruitment from multiple sites for one study. WCCT Global collects all pre-screening information and recruitment statistics for all sites involved in the study and then reports all information to the sponsor.
