Q&A with Sarah Schneider, Clinical Research Associate at genae Germany
Q: How can you speed up enrollment?
A: First, I would like to highlight that careful site selection is crucial for speeding up enrollment. You need to consider sites that can and will conduct the study, who have the experience with these types of devices and have a study team.
It is also important to verify if there are any legibility criteria which are conflicting with the hospital standard of care, which could prevent any enrollment. Recruitment is challenging enough.
In the next phase, it is critical that all involved parties are properly trained. To motivate and support your site, regular contact by the CRA, updates on the study status or a newsletter by manager/sponsor are much appreciated. Finally, re-training calls or motivational visits can help to speed up enrollment.
