The use of real-world evidence can accelerate drug development and product approvals. However, the acceptable use of real-world evidence for regulatory purposes is a rapidly evolving area where industry and agencies are still defining the criteria.

In late 2021, FDA, EMA, and MHRA issued a total of six guidances providing sponsors recommendations to help ensure that RWD collected is fit for purpose and can be used as RWE.

The presenters will provide an overview of the six guidances, relevant publications, as well as current examples to showcase the successful use of RWE in addition to common pitfalls encountered. A live Q&A portion with the speaker will follow the presentation.

This event is brought to you by the RAPS NJ NY Chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.0 RAC recertification credit.
