Sponsors & CROs
The two biggest challenges in clinical research are recruitment and retention. Dropout rates in clinical trials average about 30% ¹, often because participants get “visit fatigue” from making multiple trips to investigator sites. One survey of trial participants found that 38% ² of dropouts found site visits stressful.
As more pharma companies and CROs seek service providers for in-home clinical trial research to help alleviate these stresses, they should ask potential partners one key question:
“How can we be sure that in-home visits will meet our high standards for quality and subject safety?”
Since 2008, the answer has been PCM TRIALS. We are the only company that has Certified Mobile Research Nurses (CMRNs) focused on clinical trials and the stringent quality control methodology you’re looking for in a partner.
PCM TRIALS’ uniquely qualified CMRNs bring trial visits to subjects wherever they want them, whether at home, work, school, or on vacation. We work closely with all stakeholders – sponsor/CRO, site, subject, pharmacy, and laboratory – to optimize subject convenience, compliance, retention, and the quality of source data. PCM TRIALS has U.S. and international experience in a wide array of therapeutic areas.
Our CMRNs Understand Your Clinical Trial Needs
