Addressing Fear and Anxiety for Teens
Recruitment and Retention. A teen specific study, this age cohort is often particularly difficult to enroll. The solution needed to address the fear and anxiety often associated with clinical trials and premature patient dropout.
We developed a comprehensive program of print resources designed exclusively for teenage participants based on typical social situations that provided comfort to those maturing to adulthood. Resources were also developed for caregivers in a move to keep the care circle engaged and informed to mitigate possible retention issues.
