Patient Recruitment

In addition to being able to recruit patients through our affiliated private practices, CRSF maintains a research-only patient database, giving us an aggregate database of over 50,000 potential subjects. Our research-only database contains subjects who have participated in CRSF trials previously or who have been screened, but did not qualify for participation. As individuals inquire about trials they are added to the database. The goal of our full-time recruitment staff is to make certain that prospective patients are thoroughly screened on the phone prior to their office visit to help reduce screening failures. This staff is determined to make certain CRSF meets or exceeds contracted enrollment on all trials it conducts.
Advertising campaigns, when necessary, are customized specifically for each target subject population and include: newspaper, television (local & cable), radio, flyers, health fairs, direct mailings, newsletters, promotional items, posters, and billboards.
