5 Ways to Optimize Success for your ePro Clinical Study
Statistics show that up to 30%* of patients drop out of a trial showcasing the considerable challenge both CROs and pharmaceutical companies face during clinical trials. To maximize success for your clinical trial, we’ve put together five ePro verification questions to ensure patients remain motivated through to the finish line.
How user-friendly is your ePro system for patients?
How is the ePro login procedure?
How complex is the ePro landing page? Is it difficult for the patients to quickly get a good overview?
How are your questionnaires written?
Do they make sense to non-professionals?
“Ask the right questions if you’re to find the right answers.” – Vanessa Redgrave
As medical professionals passionate and knowledgeable about the study at hand, it can be easy to forget about the patient when creating the trial questionnaire. If a question is not easy to understand, or there is a chance the patient will misunderstand the question, not only can the patient lose interest, the compliance of your trial can also suffer.
How is the questionnaire presented?
Do you inform the patient of progress and indicate how many questions remain to completion?
