In collaboration with DT Consulting, Carenity*, part of EvidentIQ, conducted a survey of patients from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, and the US to learn more about their experience with clinical trials.
Understanding the difference between participants’ expectations and their actual experiences is a key issue in advancing medical research.
What are patients’ expectations in terms of communication from the organization managing the clinical trial during a clinical trial?
How is the patient informed about the trial? And by which health actor first?
What channels of communication does the patient use most with the organization managing the clinical trial?
What factors have the most impact on a patient’s decision to complete a clinical trial?
