Reducing Patient Burdens

Minimizing patient burden increases enrollment rates

Patient burdens to participate in clinical trials make it difficult to recruit. Patients receive overwhelming amounts of information about their condition. They face complicated treatment decisions and are often not informed about the clinical trial process. Even physicians aren’t always knowledgeable about clinical trials that may be available to their patients. Patients need time to research all options and to communicate with their physicians and families to identify which trials may be right for them.

The patient burden

How we help

AES understands the burdens patients face when managing their condition. We build trust with each patient by ensuring that they walk into a professional and welcoming site environment. It’s important that patients feel comfortable with our investigators and site staff as they understand their treatment plan. We offer virtual first office visits (FOVs) and pre-screens to make trial participation easier. Virtual FOVs can require just 10-15 minutes, meaning that patients don’t have to take time off work. Flexible office hours and telehealth options further reduce the time burden on patients. When patients visit a clinic, staff address questions to help patients fully understand their treatment path, communicating with them using their own communication preferences.
