We are proud to say that The Netherlands has reached its goal to recruit 600 patients in the control arm! To celebrate this, we organised a lunch (with cake!) at the LUMC for all employees working for the PREPARE study. This was the perfect opportunity for everyone to meet (almost) all of the other members of the Dutch PREPARE team. The lunch was a great success and was what we call in Dutch: “gezellig”.
We have sent boxes of chocolates to all recruiting public pharmacies to thank them for doing their part in reaching our goal and to try to boost recruitment even further. At present, we have recruited 675 patients in Leiden. Up to our next goal: 1200 Dutch participants!
