Lasagna’s Law is a phenomenon that continues to occur in clinical trials. Investigators overestimate the number of patients in their practice who will agree to participate in a clinical trial. The result is low enrollment and delays in completion of study.
CPR’s solution is to increase awareness and exposure of clinical trials to the general public. Increasing numbers of patients are searching the internet to learn more about their medical condition and ways of accessing affordable medical care. CPR’s division for patient recruitment, ClinicalTrialsForYou.com is the home of Patient Medical Care Network, a free service for patients who are motivated to participate in clinical trials. We provide them an opportunity to participate in a clinical trial by identifying one that the patient is qualified for.
We use the internet and social networking tools to drive individuals to our site. CPR’s comprehensive process of screening and pre-qualifying the patient to includes identifying factors that help determine levels of compliance and retention as well as obtaining a complete medical history to determine if they meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria. We identify a study in their area and contact the study site to schedule a visit.
We continue our communication with the patient during the study, offering support and guidance. We are there to answer questions and remind them of appointments and study procedure requirements.
