Communities and Conversations
We’re better together! Recruiting and retaining participants to trials is challenging. But collaborating can help. AccrualNet™ provides two distinct ways to collaborate.
Communities are groups where members with a shared purpose convene around common issues. Members interact regularly and learn from each other. These groups are sometimes called "Communities of Practice." You can ask to join an existing community or start one of your own.
Conversations are open discussions. You can start or contribute to a conversation by becoming an AccrualNet™ member.

No matter how promising the research, the ongoing effort to explain the benefits of clinical trials and reassure potential participants about their safety and integrity can be difficult and is often ineffective when it comes to impacting accrual. We all want to improve the way information about clinical trials is communicated.
