These issues are discussed and considered at the planning stage of the study. Rather than becoming a crisis management exercise, a strategic response for retention is put in place even before the first patient has consented. Keeping patients motivated is no small feat and requires dedication and continual review.Part of the Synexus Project Management process, is to keep track of patient attrition rates and also to pro-actively identify warning signs.
Each Dedicated Research Centre is tasked with flagging signs which might suggest a patient is losing motivation and commitment to a study. These flags may include:
- Missed appointments
- Lack of enthusiasm
- Reduced communication - unreturned phone calls, failure to respond to written communications.
