Real-world evidence (RWE) Navigator
The Real-world evidence (RWE) Navigator:
- Is an educational resource: helping users to find out more about the potential issues in demonstrating relative effectiveness of new medicines (referred to as ‘effectiveness issues’).
- Provides guidance: guiding users to specific types of analyses or study designs using RWE to support the development of medicines.
- Is a directory of resources: a comprehensive resource on the use of RWE in medicines, signposting to outputs from the GetReal projects and other authoritative sources of information on RWE.
The RWE Navigator has been designed for a wide variety of users. For example, pharmaceutical companies may find it useful to increase awareness about the use of RWE among their staff members, or patients may use it to understand concepts related to RWE and better understand challenges of using or generating RWE.
Understanding GetReal and the RWE Navigator
Step 1: Clarify the issues
This section helps to gain a greater understanding of the potential issues (or ‘effectiveness issues’) in demonstrating relative effectiveness for a medicine, including actions that can be used to explore the potential issues.
Step 2: Find RWE options
This section function provides different study designs or analytical techniques that could be considered to address the issues (or ‘effectiveness challenges’), depending on the development stage of a medicine and the relevant PICO category.
Directory of resources
Access to all webpages, such as background information on real-world evidence (RWE), sources and study designs providing RWE, analytical methods using RWE, and find related GetReal work and other authoritative sources.
