recruitment and retention a process rather than a single activity. We can work
with customers from the outset with protocol development, feasibility studies
and site selection. We can manage projects with on-going activities from first
patient in (FPS) to last patient out (LPO). We address patient recruitment and
retention in a systematic way throughout the planning process and during the
extensive experience, we can bring together all the necessary elements to bring
project success. Link Medical has the necessary network and overview of local
hospital specialities, expert groups, key opinion leaders, investigators and
patient flow, to ensure best-in-class performance. We also offer great flexibility
and the ability to perform feasibility studies at a short notice. We analyse
the feasibility of performing projects at both a national and international level,
as well as at specific sites. We base our recommendations on first-hand
experience with the study sites, combined with the criteria defined in
collaboration with customers for each and every project.
