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.
Understanding the RWE Navigator
Clarify the issues
This section helps you to gain a greater understanding of the potential issues
(‘effectiveness issues’) in demonstrating the relative effectiveness of a medicine, including actions to explore the potential issues.
Find RWE options
This section provides different study designs or analytical techniques that may be considered to address the issues (‘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.
