Patient perspectives: The balancing act of trial participation

When we think about clinical trials, our minds often gravitate toward the scientific intricacies of these studies - the testing of new treatments, data analysis, and the quest for medical breakthroughs. However, it's essential to remember that behind every clinical trial, there's a patient, and often a caregiver, whose life is deeply impacted by this journey. 

So, let’s consider this: the concept of "Participation-Life Balance" and how technology can enhance the design and workflow of clinical trials while acknowledging the holistic needs of patients and caregivers to work towards achieving this.

Patient Perspectives: Surveys reveal what works best for patients

Since 2018, Medable has employed a network of patients and caregivers whose job is to help improve the clinical trial experience for participants, sites, and coordinators. Their work is designed to help facilitate equitable, inclusive, and diverse clinical trials. They are called the Patient Caregiver Network (PCN).

Medable’s PCN is comprised of over 80+ members representing various indications who have each participated in, or assisted with clinical conduct. 

With the landscape of pharma shifting, Medable recently surveyed its network to identify what’s working, and what isn’t, in the world of digital evidence generation. We’ve collected their responses and are summarizing their sentiments below in order to help further clinical research and to help bring effective therapies to patients faster.
