Recruitment for Healthcare Research is facing multiple challenges. During the Covid Pandemic did we ‘spoil’ HCPs with high honorariums for TDIs/VDIs to get them to do interviews during difficult times? Now that we are past the Pandemic, is this status quo moving forward? Will we ever get back to in-person research, and what will it take?
We continue to look for niche audiences – both in terms of the patients and those who treat them. How do we best partner with our fieldwork providers to help ensure success?
Join us and a panel of healthcare recruiters as we discuss these challenges and more in the world of healthcare research. Get smart about what we really will be able to offer our clients moving forward.
