Anemia in ESRD Kidney Disease Population
Recruitment of 150 Kidney Disease patients in the US who have a haemoglobin score lower than 11 g/dL.
Patients had to get clinician confirmation of their diagnosis and then complete an online survey within 2 weeks of their latest haemoglobin reading.
This was a very difficult patient group to find. Initially we worked in partnership with the AAKP (largest US patient association). This yielded around half of the possible recruits.
We topped this up to 150 by using six different recruitment teams spread geographically across the US – who recruited the patients through clinician referrals and their own proprietary databases. The survey was completed within 3 months to satisfactory feedback from the client.
