Looking for Paitents to Participate in a Bladder Cancer Treatment Study....Do You Qualify?

Dear Support Group Leader,

My name is Nicole with Murray Hill National. We have partnered with the research team at Adelphi Values, a healthcare consultancy that works closely with pharmaceutical companies to better understand the experiences of patients with various health conditions.

We are conducting approximately 15 telephone interviews with patients with Stage IV bladder cancer with the goal of gaining a better understanding of bladder cancer and related treatments from the patient’s perspective.  Currently we are looking to partner with support groups to help identify and recruit patients for qualitative interviews. The materials for this project are IRB approved

This is a non-interventional, qualitative study (requiring minimal paperwork) consisting of a one-time phone interview with patients. I have attached the inclusion and exclusion criteria here for your review. 

Qualified patients will be paid $150 for a one hour telephone interview
Any healthcare professional or support group leader who can connect us with qualified participants will receive a $50 referral fee per patient

Thank you again for your consideration of this study and please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments.  We look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Kind regards,


Nicole Newton | Murray Hill National
