Webinar: Reducing Risk of Lost To Follow-Up

Issues relating to patients lost to follow-up (LTFU) continue to challenge sponsors and sites – taking already limited time and budgets away from more critical clinical research efforts. Missing patients equals missing outcome measures and data, and can have a hugely negative effect on regulatory data submission. How can sponsors and sites ensure that they are implementing strategic best-practices to help prevent lost patients?

Join BBK’s webinar to learn more about how to greatly reduce LTFU and its costly impact. Experts in study start-up and patient retention will share experiences and advice on how to structure and support patient/site relationships to minimize patients lost to follow-up.

The webinar will cover:

  • Recommendations for informed consent elements that empower sites to maintain communication with patients – especially those who withdraw from active study participation
  • Best practices in supporting patients by removing logistical obstacles to ongoing participation
  • Approaches to determining participant vital status, when ongoing communication is truly lost
  • Global privacy and data regulations impacting participant follow-up
  • The ways in which all study stakeholders – including sponsors, CROs, sites– can develop more effective patient communication strategies
