We are pleased to announce an upcoming seminar series for ePRO beginning this September! The collection of patient self-reported data is becoming increasingly important and, in some cases, a regulatory requirement in the assessment of safety and efficacy, and to determine labeling claims. Recent regulatory guidance and the introduction of the PRO and ePRO Consortia are helping to change the landscape with respect to patient self-reported data. Featuring both the sponsor and partner perspectives, join us to hear from industry experts on best practices and how to choose the best methodology as part of your future Patient Reported Outcomes strategy. This seminar will explore how sponsors and CROs can navigate the ePRO landscape from assessment planning right through to data submission. Thus far, ERT has selected a few separate dates and locations throughout the US to bring the latest ePRO industry information to your backyard, at your convenience and entirely complimentary. The all encompassing agenda features: Validating a gold standard instrument for ePRO, a review of the latest ePRO Regulatory Guidance and an introduction to the C-Path Institute’s ePRO and PRO Consortia, PRO Scale Selection, ePRO Modality Selection, and Data integration.
