International collaboration on real-world evidence in COVID-19
Date: November 24, 2020 
Time: 9:00 – 10:00 am EST 
Speaker: Dr. Peter Arlett, European Medicines Agency

Since the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic there has been an explosion of real-world evidence (RWE) publications. Many of these publications have been based on small populations, methodological vigour has not always been optimal and the quality of reporting, including results being made public prior to peer-review, has often made interpreting the results difficult. International regulatory collaboration on RWE studies about COVID-19 has the potential to increase the size of populations being studied and to increase methodological vigour and quality of reporting through the sharing of expertise.
