RCT & RWE: Evolution, Revolution or Integration?

April 21, 2017

For decades, the randomized controlled trial (RCT) has been “the gold standard” of clinical research, but its role in clinical evidence generation is now being revisited in a broader context. In this exclusive Global Forum podcast, Dr. Nancy Dreyer (Global Chief of Scientific Affairs and Senior Vice President and Head of the Center for Advanced Evidence Generation at Quintiles-IMS) explores this new context and previews the DIAmond session The Evolution of Evidence Generation: Real-World Evidence and the Next Generation of Decision Making, that she will help lead at our DIA 2017 Global Annual Meeting. “The message is growing: The opportunities for using supplementary tools in addition to RCTs will promote access to better medicines more quickly,” explains Dr. Dreyer. “Real-world evidence reflects the kind of patients and the kind of health care practitioners that patients see every day.” Register to attend our DIA 2017 Global Annual Meeting!
