- Attendees will learn about efforts to create a study registration site based on recommendations from the transparency initiative including how this fits into broader efforts increase transparency in research outside of HEOR; and
- Attendees will learn about the joint task force with ISPE regarding development of a protocol template for RWE hypothesis evaluating treatment effects studies.
