In addition to patient recruitment, Akcelis also offers recruitment services for clinical trials involving healthy volunteers.
Phase I units are continuously looking for healthy volunteers to be included in their clinical trials. Akcelis was contacted by a phase I unit to boost their recruitment. We proposed to create a general awareness campaign to inform the general population about the importance of clinical trials and to recruit healthy men and women for this phase I unit.
Our challenge was to recruit 300 healthy men and women between 18 and 65 years for phase 1 clinical trials performed by a phase 1 unit in Belgium.
Akcelis launched an online recruitment campaign:
306 healthy volunteers were referred to the phase I unit after 2 weeks of recruitment campaign
