The key highlights from the interview:

  • Ross Jackson is a specialist in patient recruitment for clinical trials with experience in the UK, Europe, and the US. He has authored two books on the subject.

  • His career journey began in digital marketing, where he initially recruited patients for a doctor’s new treatment. Over time, he shifted his focus to healthcare and clinical trial recruitment.

  • Patient recruitment faces challenges related to awareness and access. Many people are unaware of clinical trials, and misconceptions like being seen as “guinea pigs” persist. Lack of understanding about the importance of clinical research compounds the issue.

  • Ross emphasizes the need for collaboration within the industry and the potential impact of AI, particularly natural language processing, in improving patient recruitment processes.

  • He also mentions his excitement about attending a conference and watching his first Super Bowl in Orlando, highlighting his interest in sports and the upcoming event.

  • The interview concludes with gratitude for sharing information about his new book and the hope that it will benefit those interested in patient recruitment. The book is available on Amazon.
