Component Type: Session

Although RCTs may be the gold standard for approving new treatments, the results are not always generalizable to less idealized settings or more diverse patients. Real-world evidence (RWE) plays an important role in understanding how well a therapy works, for which patients, and under what conditions. In this session, we review the complementary nature of RCTs and RWE, discuss Friends of Cancer Research learnings, and reinforce the call for methods to guide reliable regulatory use of RWE.
