MRN specializes in the conduct of clinical trial visits in the patient’s home and supporting clinical trial sites with nursing resources.  We believe in reducing the burden of participation on patients and reducing the burden on participation on sites – building more patient-centric clinical trials.

MRN offers two core services in the management of complex clinical trials:

Home Trial Support (HTS) is the conduct of clinical trial visits in the patient’s home. This replaces a number of protocol defined visits which would normally take place onsite, and relocates them in the patient’s home – reducing the burden of the trial on the patient and significantly boosting patient recruitment and maximizing patient retention. With HTS, sites can recruit patients from a wider geographical region and reach a larger patient pool, as well as increase their consenting and retention rates.  We have seen that reducing the burden on patients directly increases recruitment by 60% or more and typically maintains patient retention at over 95%, as well as reducing the burden on clinical sites.

Site Nurse Support (SNS) places experienced research nurses into sites to manage trials; this enables each site to focus on patient identification and selection, as well as facilitating performance of all procedures in a timely manner. Placements can be made at single sites, or nursing teams can be pulled together to support sites across whole countries or trials. With SNS, sites have a dedicated resource to identify and screen patients from the increased patient pool effectively.

Together, the impact of these services can result in an increase of up to 600% of completed patients per site.

MRN is a recognized leader in the Home Trial Support clinical trials field. We have a geographical coverage of over 40 countries where we can provide our services.
