GlobalData Conducts Comprehensive Survey of Clinical Professionals

By Sarah Hof

Countless aspects of clinical trial operations have been disrupted in the last 10 months. To explore new pain points and shifts in trial planning across the industry as a result of the pandemic, GlobalData conducted a survey to gather metrics from professionals across the world, as reported by Pharmaceutical Technology.

Overall, GlobalData found that patient recruitment was the most significant challenge to clinical teams across the world. Over 20% of all respondents from each region (North America, Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe and Rest of World (RoW)) reported that patient recruitment due to safety concerns was the biggest challenge they face, with nearly a third (32%) of all APAC participants saying so. 

A significant portion of respondents noted that the pandemic was forcing them to cancel or delay their studies. Nine percent of APAC participants, 16% of European participants, 21% of North American participants, and 22% of the participants from RoW reported as such.
