WHITE PAPER 03: From recruitment barrier to participant enabler: Rethinking informed consent

Why a strong informed consent strategy can increase clinical trial success

Among the biggest barriers to clinical trial recruitment is heath seekers failing to access the information they need, or not understanding the information they’re given.

If learning about a clinical trial and what it means for them isn’t easy or clear, health seekers will understandably give up on signing up. Which is why improving your informed consent strategy can make a huge difference to your recruitment success.

A strong, human-driven informed consent strategy can be your most powerful recruitment tool. To learn how to put it in place ready for your next clinical trial, simply take a look at our latest whitepaper.

New whitepaper: Improving the informed consent process for improved clinical trial recruitment

This whitepaper explores how creative recruitment campaigns that understand the psychological constructs of informed consent can:

  • Improve your understanding of health seekers
  • Reduce recruitment barriers related to low health literacy
  • Increase health seeker satisfaction
  • Increase recruitment rates of health seekers to clinical trials
  • Aid in the retention of health seekers for the duration of the trial

You might have noticed that all of us here at COUCH Health are big advocates for taking action to improve diversity and inclusion in the world of clinical research. ‘Taking action’ rather than simply talking about what we should be doing is really important to us. Which is why we put together information that can be used to make change, not just discuss it.

August 2020: diversity and inclusion in clinical trials round-up
Although the statistics have to change, we’re really pleased that conversations are still happening about the lack of diversity in clinical trials. More reports are coming to light about the lack of ethnicity reporting, and the underrepresentation of ethnic minorities. We hope this evidence and increased awareness will help bring changes not just for individual clinical trials, but across the whole industry.

If your clinical trial doesn’t have a website, do you even exist?
In a world where pretty much everything and everyone has an online presence, it’s almost unbelievable that not all clinical studies do.

Site-related factors that can impact patient recruitment
Joining a clinical study is a significant decision for anyone. Before a participant signs up for a clinical study, there are many factors that can influence how likely a patient is to take part. We have previously discussed the importance of patient engagement and the need for patient centricity as early as study planning stages.

Protocol-related issues that can impact patient recruitment
Many factors can impact a patient’s decision to take part in a clinical study. But what steps can the industry take to try to improve patient recruitment?  Sometimes, we need to go back to the basics and look to the very beginning of the clinical study process.
