Treating patients like experts
Patients should be treated as experts in what it is like to live with their condition and that they can provide great insights into understanding the therapeutic context for drug development and evaluation. admedicum is committed to ensuring optimal incorporation of the patients’ voice in drug development to achieve optimized, meaningful and faster treatments to patients. Listen to patients, learn from patients, and co-create with patients while preparing, executing, reporting, and finally enhancing your clinical trial.
The inconvenient truth of running clinical trials
By now, we are all well aware of the challenges and problems in clinical trial recruitment:
- 23% of patients unhappy with site location
- 30% of patients do not consent due to lack of understanding
- 30% of patients drop-out before the study ends
- 4 out of 5 sites fail to enroll to target
What aspects need to be addressed?
Unnecessary high patient burden, suboptimal study design, inadequate recruitment strategies, and below-par communication with patients.
Our overall perspective on patient engagement in clinical trials
Our approach to enhance patient enrollment in clinical trials
