Clinical Research of South Florida (CRSF) recognizes that successful clinical research depends on strong recruitment and retention of participants. CRSF utilizes a variety of recruitment and enrollment strategies to ensure this progress.
In addition to recruiting patients through our affiliated private practices, CRSF maintains a research-only patient database, resulting in an aggregate database of over 50,000 potential subjects.
Our research-only database contains subjects who have participated in CRSF trials previously or who have been screened, but did not qualify for participation. As individuals inquire about trials they are also added to the database.
CRSF has a full-time recruitment staff dedicated to make certain that prospective patients are thoroughly screened by telephone prior to their office visit to help reduce screening failures. This staff is determined to make certain CRSF meets or exceeds contracted enrollment on all trials it conducts.
Advertising campaigns, when necessary, are customized specifically for each target subject population and include: newspaper, television (local & cable), radio, flyers, health fairs, direct mailings, newsletters, promotional items, posters, and billboards.
