Patient and site recruitment

OPC provides a site and patient identification and recruitment service, to support recruitment of suitable sites and potential eligible patients to participate in a specific study, trial or project. The site or patient eligibility criteria for a study or project is applied to OPCRD to identify suitable sites or patients. The relevant site(s) are then recruited from the OPC Network to participate in the relevant study or project. OPC can also recruits new sites to participate in OPCRD supported studies if required.
