Current Market Feasibility For HCP Research Due to Coronavirus

As the COVID-19 situation has settled down somewhat, we have now moved to updating this tracker weekly rather than daily. It shows the feasibility situation in all the major countries KQH works in.

Last Updated: 8th July

In Person / Viewing Facility Research: Some countries are now opening up again for in facility / in person research. However we would advise having a back-up of switching to remote should lock-downs be re-imposed.
Advice for all studies: Flexibility remains key. Situations can change so timelines and moderators should be flexible. Simultaneous translation / listening in should be allowed after the event if needed to allow maximum flexibility.  The most flexible interview platforms should be used / reserved as a back-up. We are seeing recruitment slow in some countries as waiting lists are dealt with and the holiday season starts.
