Philadelphia City Center
CHI’s Third Annual Patient Recruitment in Clinical Trials:
Successfully Planning and Managing Recruitment and Retention will be
held March 8-9, 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia City Center in
Philadelphia, PA. This year this gathering will be co-located with the
Summit for Clinical Ops Executives ( SCOPE ), a four-day cluster of
events taking place March 8-11, 2010. CHI’s Patient Recruitment will
open with a pre-conference short course on ‘Designing and Implementing
a Clinical Enrollment Plan’ and will be followed immediately by a
short course on ‘Country and Site Feasibility and Selection for Global
Clinical Trials’ and the Second Annual Drug Development Latin America
conference. Patient recruitment and retention are critical to drug
development programs. Patient recruitment, if not adequately planned
for, can extend your development timeline by a number of years.
Retention of patients throughout the life of a clinical trial is
essential in order have complete data sets for your analysis and
subsequent filings. In order to optimize both you have to have a plan.
This conference is intended to cover the topics one should consider
when drafting and strategically implementing a patient recruitment and
retention plan for a clinical development program.
