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 the relative effectiveness of new medicines (‘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 evaluation of 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. Patients and patient organisations may use it to better understand RWE concepts and the challenges involved in using or generating RWE. Regulators or HTA professionals may use it to understand more about the need for RWE and the challenges of designing studies to meet this need. Pharmaceutical companies may find it useful to increase awareness about the use of RWE among staff members.
