In 2017 the 7th Epidemiological Forum, a unique one-day event combining a focus on real world data, pharmacoepidemiology and clinical development will be held in Vienna, Monday 9th October.

Real world data reflects actual outcomes within the setting of clinical care in a wider context than the randomised clinical trial. While offering much promise to understanding the effectiveness of treatments in patient populations, such data brings in a host of challenges ranging from quality, via ethics to “big data” style informatics requirements. This meeting will explore the regulatory framework that is increasingly developing to govern the use of personal data in the health domain, as well larger scale momentous political changes globally and within Europe since 2016 impacting on healthcare overall. Ultimately, the utilisation of real world data remains open to discussion, conjecture and for some controversy, so illustrative use cases are critical in continuing the debate.

The 2017 annual conference will be considering:

  • Regulatory and political context around the use of real world data
  • Hot topics within real world evidence application
  • Illustrative use cases on the efficacy of utilising real world data

This event aims to bring together experts not only from the world of clinical research but also from academia, public institutions and industry to exchange views and experiences among all the participants, providing networking opportunities and adequate discussion between speakers and audience.
