One of the many important outreach tactics in patient recruitment is partnering with advocacy organizations that already actively engage with patients, caregivers, and even physicians. Outreach to patients through these outlets – particularly organizations that are seen as trusted resources for those living with or affected by a condition – can bring validity and awareness to clinical research. This, in turn, can impact enrollment if executed effectively.
Our approach to working with advocacy organizations.
The Praxis outreach process is always tailored to the unique needs of each patient population and trial design. Our in-house outreach department seeks to understand the patient journey, including diagnosis and disease management, when developing an outreach strategy. This includes identifying organizations that a patient and/or a caregiver may interact with and how likely they are to rely on these trusted groups. We then evaluate if there are ways to partner with these organizations to share information about the trial with potential patients within a given group’s network.
We connect with an organization to determine if clinical trial awareness aligns with the mission of the group. If so, we request instruction about how we can disseminate information to its members. While each organization’s mission, structure, and communication opportunities are unique, we typically share information at a national or geo-targeted level through the following media:
A customized outreach strategy.
At Praxis, we work with each of our clients to design the right strategy to engage with advocacy organizations. This may include varying levels of support for planning, managing, facilitating, and optimizing results for an individual study. Whether we’re cultivating new relationships with organizations or leveraging existing ones, Praxis develops and customizes each outreach plan for the best results.
Let’s reach out together.
Advocacy organizations both big and small are already connecting with the patients you’re trying to reach. No matter the level of support you need, Praxis’ outreach department will use our deep relationships and experience to work closely with these groups to increase visibility for your trial.
