Als eine Bekannte den Tierfreund Steve Jenkins fragte, ob er nicht ein Minischwein adoptieren wolle, wusste Steve, dass sein Lebensgefährte Derek nicht gerade begeistert sein würde. Dennoch willigte er ein, sich des süßen kleinen Ferkels anzunehmen. Eine Entscheidung, die Dereks und sein Leben für immer verändern sollte. Denn rein gar nichts an Esther war »Mini« – in drei Jahren wurde sie zu einem ausgewachsenen Hausschwein von 335 Kilo. Doch trotz aller Schwierigkeiten und einer Menge buchstäblicher »Schweinereien« liebten die beiden Esther: nur wie sollte es in ihrer Stadtwohnung mitten in Toronto mit der tierischen WG weitergehen? Wieder fassten sie einen weitreichenden Entschluss: per Crowdfunding finanzierten sie ein Gnadenhof-Projekt für ehemalige Nutztiere. Heute leben sie mit Esther und vielen anderen tierischen Freunden auf dem Land in Ontario im Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary.

Chapter 12. Minimizing Trial Costs by Accelerating and Improving Enrollment and Retention

About 2% of the United States population gets involved with clinical research trials each year; among those people who suffer from severe, chronic illnesses (including Alzheimer’s disease), only 6% participate. As a result, an increasing number of clinical trials are delayed because too few people ever know they had an opportunity to get involved. Recruitment strategies consist of effective campaigns that reach the intended population of potential patients. A strategy using several tactics will most likely achieve the best outcome. The art of patient recruitment is to cast a wide net, combining a patient-centric enrollment focus, involving the use of social media and conventional media, coupled with customer-“friendly” protocols. Investigative sites providing a high level of customer satisfaction may result in accelerating enrolment, improving retention and thereby reducing the overall study cost.
