Have you ever had trouble enrolling patients for a study? If you answered “yes” then you’re not alone.

These delays in drug development cost a lot of money, but when it comes to finding the right participants, patient recruitment is easier said than done.

Take a look at the infographic below to see how people find out about clinical trials, important factors in choosing to participate, top perceived benefits and risks, challenges associated with enrollment, and more.

    Re:Infographic. It would make a great poster for promoting clinical trials at public forums. Can you covert it pdf at high enough resolution for poster size prints? (slides would be useful for our clinical staff and investigators). Many thanks and much Mahalo! (“Thank You” in Hawaiian)
