Coming to You

Finding patients who are not only willing to participate, but who can work both their personal and professional schedules around a clinical trial’s requirements, has grown increasingly difficult. Obstacles to overcome include the length of time required to source and keep such patients – especially when the studies are of a global nature – as well as unpredictable delays to the trial itself. Ensuring that timelines match with expectations, particularly when time is critical, has a decided impact on a manufacturer’s bottom line. By moving the trials from a hospital setting into patients’ homes, it becomes easier to recruit subjects and allows for faster completion of important studies.

At the Centre


Researchers are seeing the benefit of a patient-centric approach employing the direct-to-patient (DtP) model in order to address these challenges and move studies ahead more effectively. This approach not only puts participants at the centre of the trial experience, but is also designed to reduce inconvenience for them and their families as the study goes on.

Using this model, it is no longer necessary for patients to interrupt their lives with trips to the hospital – which, in some cases, can be many miles away – for procedures that can take several hours to complete. They are not subject to the office hours of doctors and nurses, and have more ownership of their schedule in relation to the trial.
