Despite the increasing demand for Real World Evidence (RWE) generation across a product’s lifecycle, there are challenges that need to be carefully addressed. These include the choice of the appropriate data sources and methodological approaches to structure and analyze such data to produce viable action plans.

During the webinar, learn how to effectively address these challenges. Using actual case studies, viewers will understand the development of an effective strategy that incorporates epidemiology, health economics and outcome research, and uses already available Real World data. When such data are not available, learn how to develop the data to support an effective evidence generation plan.
