Launch of real-world evidence framework

NICE wants to use real-world data to resolve gaps in knowledge and drive forward access to innovations for patients. To help deliver this, we’ve developed a real-world evidence framework. It helps to identify when real-world data can be used to reduce uncertainties and improve guidance. It also describes best practices for planning, conducting and reporting real-world evidence studies.


Partner with NICE on our research proposals

NICE is seeking European consortia to partner on its Innovative Health Initiative (IHI) research proposals. This is a great opportunity for health researchers to work together on some of the most pressing issues in health. Topics include cancer, cardiovascular disease and health data. If you are interested in any of the IHI calls listed, please contact Dr Dalia Dawoud, senior scientific adviser at NICE. 

Updated decision tool supports engagement with European regulatory and HTA bodies 

The Efficiently Networking European Neurodegeneration Research Programme (Neuronet) has updated its decision tool. The tool provides a clickable overview of the processes and procedures for health technology assessment (HTA) and regulatory interactions at different stages of the development pipeline. Following updates from NICE, it now includes case studies and signposts to additional useful resources.

Free ‘Introduction to health technology assessment’ (HTA) online course

We’ve teamed up with the European Health Data Evidence Network (EHDEN) Academy to offer a short online course in introduction to HTA. It covers:

  • Introduction to HTA.
  • How do HTA agencies assess clinical effectiveness?
  • How do HTA agencies assess cost effectiveness?
  • How do HTA agencies use real world evidence?
  • EHDEN and HTA: barriers and opportunities.
  • EHDEN for HTA.

The course is free but you’ll need to set up an EHDEN Academy account and log in to access it. It’s quick and easy to do.

The EHDEN Academy is a free online educational resource for anyone working in the domain of real-world evidence. It’s maintained by EHDEN, an EU research project of which NICE is a collaborating partner.
