Meeting enrollment goals in a timely fashion is among the most substantial challenges faced by a site conducting randomized clinical research trials. In order to effectively meet the challenge, the site must prepare an effective recruitment plan prior to opening enrollment for a study. Formulating such a plan relies on three key factors: study protocol, study indication, and site budget. Data from previous similar studies can be helpful in guiding the allocation of patient recruitment funds and workload. This practicum research project applies a number of recruitment metrics proposed in the literature to the subject accrual efforts of a site management organization in order to objectively quantify performance.
