Clinical studies, like the rest of the medical world, can often use techniques that are a little outdated. Here at Citruslabs, we employ modern, industry leading methods to get the most out of virtual trial techniques -- and in turn, to boost your patient enrollment and engagement. We’ve collected a series of patient testimonials to show off our unique approach.
One patient, Leighton, from an arthritis trial we recently recruited for described the virtual aspects of his trial as more convenient than other treatment options during the pandemic. He went on to say: "Due to Covid-19, I was part of a virtual trial, meaning all visits and conversations were done via video call, which made me feel very safe and helped me to take care of my health while working at the same time.”
Another patient on the same trial was pleased to receive real results, unlike they’d experienced in years of chronic pain. “Today, I feel way better than I did just a year ago. My joints don't feel as stiff anymore, it's still a process but I finally feel like I am on the right way,” Jonathan said.
What’s more, we prioritize educating patients on clinical trials, from finding a study they’re eligible for, to how to navigate informed consent and what to expect throughout the rest of the study process. We’ve found that this emphasis on informing patients only helps to encourage them to enroll in studies, even if they were hesitant before.
One patient described how learning more about the clinical trial process helped her to feel more eager to enroll in a study:
"I've been living with my condition for 10 years now and being sent from doctor to doctor and having to live with daily restrictions can be hard. If I could find a celiac study in my area, I would definitely participate. For me, trying out new treatments can only bring me further in my process of healing,” Maria said.
