Background and Survey Purpose

In 2017, the NHC held a meeting, Patient Perspectives on Real-World Evidence: A Roundtable to Gather Views, Needs, and Recommendations, to elicit patient-community views on:

·  Real-world evidence and real-world data definitions and uses;

·  Characteristics to promote understanding/trust; and

·  Skillsets and tools needed to promote patient engagement in research, use, and dissemination

Outputs of our meeting included a whitepaper and corresponding peer-reviewed publication. Included is an extensive list of patient-group reported needs and the tools required to ensure patients can engage in RWE-related research, be a source of sound RWE, and support best RWE dissemination to and use by constituents.

In 2019, the National Health Council, in partnership with the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy, received a contract from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCORI) to develop education and resources to build patient-community capacity in real-world evidence. The purpose of this survey is to revisit the education and resource needs identified in 2017 and to seek input on which topics are most important today and desired delivery modes. 

Please contact with any questions.

This program is funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute® (PCORI®) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (16203-NHC).
