Gaining from Gamification

Much of the data in clinical research to capture the patient voice in clinical trials, observational research, and clinical practice is gathered using questionnaires. However, conventional questionnaire design and, notably, online surveys can be conceived as dull and unengaging, resulting in negative respondent behaviour such as speeding, random responding, lack of attention, and premature termination, ultimately leading to lower quality data (1).

Writing good survey questions may seem deceptively simple. However, the challenges facing questionnaire developers include:
• Getting respondents’ attention
• Getting respondents to read things
• Getting respondents to think
• Getting people to respond

Maintaining the respondent’s engagement is a key factor in ensuring the data quality does not suffer and that a surprisingly long questionnaire can be administered without significant deterioration in the quality of the data, particularly if efforts are made to maintain respondent motivation (2).

The Role of the CRO in Effective Risk-Based Monitoring

Medpace

The clinical trial industry is evolving. In an effort to improve participant safety and data integrity, regulators are encouraging trial sponsors to transition from a focused on-site monitoring approach they have traditionally employed toward a risk-based approach that utilizes a combination of centralized and on-site monitoring techniques to ensure patient safety and data quality. The Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM) paradigm has many potential advantages over established monitoring practices including enhanced patient safety and data integrity, more efficient and effective protocol design, reduced costs, and the ability to strategically adjust oversight in keeping with changes in risk level.
