The Voice

Sorry, not the TV show with Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton.  I want to let you know about a different voice; our voice.

ACRP has been working hard to raise our visibility and presence.  We’ve increased efforts to keep our members informed of the activities we’re involved in on their behalf.  ACRP wants to represent our members where it matters and we want to ensure their voice is heard when decisions are being made, when discussions are taking place and when questions are being asked.

During our celebrations of International Clinical Trials’ Day I had the opportunity to speak with Lenny Bernstein at the Washington Post about recruitment challenges in clinical trials. You can read the article here.   I was excited to be able to talk with him about some of the issues you face.  Increasing complexity, increased inclusion/exclusion criteria, recruitment and retention problems, and public trust issues are just a few examples of the challenges you face every day.  If we together can get the word out – if we can increase awareness – we can influence change.

Until next time,
