Society for Clinical Research Sites
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ellicott City, MD, March 28, 2018 – The Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) announced to attendees at its 2018 European Site Solutions Summit that PreCare Trial & Recruitment is the winner of the European Site Patient Recruitment Innovation Award (SPRIA EU).
Coming to the EU Site Solutions Summit for the first time this year, SPRIA EU recognizes a research site that has developed and implemented an innovative patient recruitment program. This year, three finalists were chosen by an independent judging panel: MeDiNova Clinical Research (UK), PreCare Trial & Recruitment (The Netherlands), and Synexus Polska, Poznań DRS (Poland). After the finalists presented their plans at the European Site Solutions Summit, the winner was chosen by a panel of judges. In assessing the plans, the judges looked for innovative patient-directed initiatives that were unique, effective and take into account the campaign response.
Vivienne van de Walle, representing PreCare Trial & Recruitment (PT&R), won the inaugural SPRIA EU. PT&R created a movie of their Informed Consent Form (ICF), which informed potential participants thoroughly about the trial and saved time on information visits and pre-screening.
“Participation in SPRIA EU is an opportunity for sites to spotlight their innovation from the main stage,” said Christine Pierre, SCRS president. “We thank all who submitted proposals for consideration and are excited to see that so many sites are achieving excellence in recruitment. Congratulations to PreCare Trial & Recruitment on their innovative approach to improving informed consent!”
