IS THERE A COMMONALITY ACROSS THE STRUCTURED DECISION FRAMEWORKS USED BY HTA AND REGULATORY AGENCIES?
1st-2nd October 2013, Surrey, UK
This Workshop was designed to bring together the various stakeholders to address the question “Is there a commonality across the structured decision frameworks used by HTA and regulatory agencies?” It is well understood that decision context is different between the two bodies but the ability to use the same decision frameworks would enable the articulation of the decision made by HTA and regulatory agencies to be transparent.
- Discuss the similarities and differences between the decision frameworks used by regulatory and HTA agencies
- Further the thinking as to what can be learnt from evaluating different methodologies used by both HTA and regulatory agencies for making their benefit risk
- Identify the common elements across methodologies and discuss how to achieve a consensus on a scientifically acceptable framework for making decisions that are broadly applicable to these stakeholders
