Creating Effective Site Partnerships to Drive Site Performance – Being the Sponsor/CRO of Choice

Dennis Salotti, MS, MBA, CCRA, Chief Operating Officer, The Avoca Group

Execution in clinical research relies on several key interdependent relationships, most notably the interface between investigative sites, CROs and Sponsors. Avoca and ACRP have partnered on research to characterize, from the site perspective, the attributes that drive quality in clinical research when working with Sponsors/CROs. This presentation will summarize key insights that arose from this research with supporting quantitative and qualitative data.

PANEL DISCUSSION: Digital Strategies for Patient Engagement & Recruitment

Dennis Salotti, MS, MBA, CCRA, Chief Operating Officer, The Avoca Group

Jiao Song, Associate Director, Janssen Clinical Innovation

David Sall, President & CEO, Patient Enrollment Advisors

Digital advances have made it easier for patients to find information about clinical trials online. How is pharma engaging with this digital audience and how is the industry integrating digital solutions into their clinical trial recruitment strategies? This discussion will address:

  • How is pharma engaging patient and caregiver communities to enhance trial awareness and recruitment?
  • How should pharma leverage social media for patient engagement and clinical trial recruitment? Are some social media platforms better than others (ex. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.)?
  • What digital strategies (mobile apps, gamification, etc.) should pharma focus on to enhance and accelerate trial recruitment?
