On 17 September 2015, the Academy of Medical Sciences, in partnership with the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, held a joint workshop on ‘Real world evidence’. This forms part of the Academy’s FORUM programme, which brings together leaders from across the life sciences to accelerate progress through discussion, collaboration and innovation.

The workshop, chaired by Sir Alasdair Breckenridge CBE FRSE FMedSci, comprised participants from across industry, regulatory, academia and policy, and aimed to explore:

  • How real world evidence might contribute to regulatory and HTA decision-making

  • Aspirations and opportunities for future use of real world evidence in a regulatory context

  • The acceptability of real world evidence, challenges to acceptability and steps to overcome these

Over the course of the morning session, speakers from the MHRA, EMA, FDA, NICE, ABPI and IMI GetReal initiative presented their perspectives on real world evidence and the work that each of their organisations is engaged with in this area. The presentations can be downloaded from the righthand side of this page. During the break-out sessions, participants then discussed their aspirations for the use of real world evidence by 2020, barriers to these aspirations and practical steps to overcome these barriers.

A full meeting report is available to download from the right hand side of this page.
