Clinical research in geriatric patient populations requires the adaptation of traditional clinical procedures in research studies. A relatively new area of research, geriatric patient studies requires a collaboration between many different stakeholders within this field to identify and overcome the challenges involved in recruiting, treating and retaining study subjects.
