Matczak JerryDesigned to inspire innovation and change in how the industry communicates with participants in the fields of recruitment and retention in clinical trials, this award embodies the values and personal accomplishments of Jerry Matczak, who sadly passed away soon after receiving the 2017 award. We dedicate this award to Jerry in the hopes that it will serve as a reminder of his ideals and accomplishments.

SCOPE’s 2018 Participant Engagement Award program is brought to you by Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI)’s SCOPE.

Regulation in this field has challenged clinical trial researchers to change how we educate and engage individuals to ensure that clinical trials are not marketed or misconstrued as approved treatments. These challenges often lead mundane creative design and engagement designed for regulators and legal review rather than to inspire higher-level creativity for the audience in which clinical trials are intended: the participants who volunteer to help bring new medicines to market.

This award program challenges every clinical trial researcher to raise the bar to bring creativity and ingenuity to the recruitment and retention communication fields by recognizing fabulous work that breaks through these barriers while meeting regulatory requirements.

Why you should attend: 
Join us as Sites, CRO’s, e-Patient Advisors, Agencies, Start-Ups, and Sponsors present their elevator pitch on how they have raised the bar in engagement with potential study participants. This light-hearted approach to a serious subject allows attendees a look into the latest innovations that put study participants first.

All submissions have been reviewed by study participants, industry peers, and a panel of industry experts to select our 5 Finalists who will present their concepts on stage at SCOPE’s “Enrollment Planning and Patient Recruitment” conference taking place February 13th-15th, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, FL. Join us for this exciting competition and be a part of the fun as we vote for the 3 winners for 2018.

In Memory of Gerald “Jerry” Matczak
Matczak Jerry

Gerald “Jerry” Matczak, lead consultant in clinical innovation at Eli Lilly & Co., was a rare breed in the pharmaceutical world, someone who not only embraced social media, but also listened to activist patients. He has been a part of the SCOPE conference since its inception and won the Patient Engagement Award on Wednesday, the day before his passing. Matczak died suddenly on Feb. 2 at age 54. We will all miss him.
