Have you ever wondered why only a slim fraction of physicians are involved in clinical trials?
Time: Consider the relentless time crunch physicians face, balancing patient care with their other professional commitments. Diving into clinical trials is like adding another hefty layer to an already full plate.
Incentives: Without tangible rewards, be it financial, career advancement, or even recognition, stepping into the demanding world of clinical research hardly seems appealing.
Bureaucracy: The daunting maze of regulations and protocols are enough to deter even the most enthusiastic physician.
Training and Awareness: Add to this the gap in training and awareness about research opportunities, and it’s clear why many doctors remain on the sidelines.
Understanding and addressing these barriers is crucial for drawing more physicians into the sphere of clinical research, turning these challenges into opportunities for innovation in drug development.
