Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer Patients

A multi-phase study where we were required to recruit 300 late stage cancer patients across Europe to understand their experiences while taking treatments for metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer.

We recruited and interviewed patients for an initial elicitation interview stage, subsequent cognitive debriefing and a final DCE online survey.

We found patients via a multi-source recruitment strategy. Using clinician referrals, advertisements and Patient Associations to find patients for the elicitation interviews, and then adding in multiple specialist online panels to the online stage, although due to the very low incidence rate, clinician referrals was the most productive recruitment source.

Global Perspectives also handled all translations, moderation and online scripting.

Off the back of the successful 2015 study, a 2016 follow up study was also commissioned with Global Perspectives.
