In a world of social media and viral content, it is easy to lose sight of the heart of a clinical trial: helping advance medicine to help build stronger and healthier communities. While online and traditional media advertisements are a very important part of finding the right volunteers for a clinical trial, utilizing and engaging your local community can also be a strong asset to your recruitment toolbox.
During this webinar, we discussed:
• What is community outreach and grassroots marketing?
• Who is the community? What is the difference between a patient community and a local community?
• When should you use community outreach and grassroots marketing?
• How should you use community outreach and grassroots marketing?
We also showed you a real-world example of one our clients utilizing this tactic, and showed you how you can apply it on a smaller, local level.
• Define community outreach and grassroots marketing
• Define how these tactics can be applied to recruitment in a research study
• Illustrate the best ways to get started and engage other resources within your community to spread awareness about your study
