Course Description

Overcome challenges in subject recruitment and retention by learning how to leverage the metrics critical to success.

Low subject recruitment and retention are a leading cause of trial delays and failure, but using the right metrics at the right time can help clinical study sites pinpoint areas for improvement and subsequently assess those improvements.

Learn which essential measures you should use for every trial in order to benchmark and monitor improvements in specific areas of subject recruitment, accrual and retention.

This self-paced, on-demand eLearning course will equip site personnel to assess current site performance and readiness for action, and to implement appropriate metric measurement and monitoring.
