Ainsley’s successes and assignment highlights

  • A Nephropathic Cystinosis study – this is a very rare condition with extremely low incidence rates. Through an investigation via desk research, calls and referrals from peers and patient groups, we managed to book an impressive number of treaters from EU5 countries and the US for this study.
  • Several projects involving the evaluation and purchasing of OR and Cath Lab equipment. The situation and relevant respondents varied in position and role from hospital to hospital. Through conversations with specialists and administrators, we were able to whittle down and finally identify the most relevant respondents for our client’s research.
  • A very high success rate with various conference recruitment studies. Methodologies used here include IDIs, Focus Groups with a mix of specialists and Countries.
