One of our Sponsor’s with whom we have preferred supplier status, approached O4 Research to conduct an observational epidemiological study in an Irish population. Our responsibilities during this study included study design input, study start-up, project management, recruitment, statistics, data management and medical writing.
A comprehensive study and site management approach was implemented to best ensure intra-site communication and therefore facilitate enrolment within the defined study period. During the pre-study phase and site initiation visits, education and emphasising the prevalence study objective were discussed extensively amongst O4 and the participating hospital departments.
Our team communicated to all stakeholders by designing and collating study specific newsletters to both investigative site staff and the participating patients. We felt this communication encouraged effective team working and recognised at an individual patient level the valuable contribution they made.
Our feedback from the research teams was really positive and highlighted that our team were very responsive and supportive throughout.
