Global patient recruitment and retention

With the growth of clinical trials on a global scale, enrolling and retaining qualified patients poses an increasingly global challenge. A challenge that can lead to costly delays, missed deadlines and lost market share.

At Lionbridge Life Sciences, we understand that language and culture play a significant role when recruiting patients from one country to the next – that what you say, and how you say it, really does matter. We’ll partner with you to deliver tailored, effective communications that work seamlessly across the global community while speaking appropriately to each local audience.

Our proven cultural expertise, knowledgeable translation services and centralized quality control can help improve your global patient recruitment and retention, and ultimately the success of your clinical trial. We offer:

  • Translation and Localization
  • Cultural Evaluations and Transcreation
  • Content Development and Support
  • Multimedia Campaigns (digital, print, online, TV, radio)
  • Web Development and Publishing
  • Call Centers (scripts, interpreters)
