Participant recruitment – Pendlebury Research recruits appropriate participants for trials through strategically targeted recruitment campaigns using direct mail and online media channels as well as traditional media. We also foster good community and professional relationships which enhance our referrals base. Underpinning Pendlebury Research’s recruitment process is a comprehensive pre-screening process designed to eliminate costly screen failures and enhance participant retention.

We are regularly the top recruiting site for studies, which is in part, due to our location in a large regional centre and a patient population keen to access novel treatment through participating in a clinical trial.
