Why You Should Attend
Closely integrated with concepts such as patient centricity and optimising healthcare provision, RWE is emerging as a critical area of expertise in pharmaceutical companies. It is becoming increasingly important within evidence planning and evidence submission, engaging various functions, such as HEOR, Medical Affairs, R&D and Commercial. The management of RWE is emerging as a new function and all pharma companies need to acquire new competencies across the organisation to stay competitive in an evolving market access environment.
The Content: Using published cases as examples to build your technical expertise, the experts will share their insights gained from working across the pharmaceutical industry in developing solutions to difficult challenges.
The Experts: Steve Fermer and Tim Holbrook work with RWE every day and engage with a wide range of life science companies, predominantly in pharma. Adelphi has a 20+ year heritage in conducting Real World studies in Europe, USA, the Far East and Latin America through the Adelphi Real World Disease Specific Programmes® (DSPs) and Bespoke Solutions. The combined knowledge and experience of these two leading problem-solvers makes this course an invaluable learning experience.
The Fundamentals of Real World Evidence course is the only available public training course delivered by Steve Fermer & Tim Holbrook on the topic of RWE.
