A. Driving collaborative evidence generation – improving the scientific quality of evaluations

  • Expand benefit-risk assessment and communication - Evaluate the impact and added value of patient involvement in Scientific Advisory Group (SAG) and Ad-hoc expert group meetings. Patients are invited to benefit-risk discussions to provide evidence based on their experience with a condition and its treatment. Results from the work will inform any future process improvement for future SAG/ad hoc expert groups. It is expected to deliver also a scientific publication demonstrating quantitative analysis and added value of patients.
  • Reinforce patient relevance in evidence generation - Support the establishment of focus groups in selected therapeutic areas. This new methodology is expected to support patient data collection on areas of unmet needs and to support the further development of patient-reported outcomes and quality of life, that will contribute to assessment of medicines and development of scientific guidelines.

B. Information on medicines for stakeholders


Important medicine-related information is prepared for the general public, such as medicine overviews and safety communications which are reviewed by patients and healthcare professionals prior to publication.

  • A pilot study is proposed using a new feedback form to reach out to patients involved in the review of medicine overviews. The feedback gathered will be analysed and used for improving the review process ensuring the feedback received is fit for purpose.
  • Review of the literature on best practices for user testing to assess new evidence that could be applicable. The aim is to ensure that information is generated in the most up to date fashion.
  • New impact assessment of EMA safety communications for patients and HCPs organisations and actions on optimising dissemination through the communication channels of these organisations
