EFPIA & EFGCP Multi-Stakeholder Workshop on Paediatric Unmet Medical Needs, 12 December 2019, Hotel NH Schiphol, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The workshop will be the opportunity to exchange opinions and develop mutually acceptable criteria for joint and informed decision making on paediatric medical needs by all stakeholders including academics, industry, parents/patients’ associations, HTA bodies, regulators, and the EU Commission.
Unmet medical needs are perceived differently by diverse stakeholders. Therefore, to better define them a common understanding is needed with the input of all stakeholders including academics, industry, parent/patients’ associations, HTA bodies, regulators, and the EU Commission, to agree on a definition and on perceived areas of needs, and to identify areas with or without medical need. To initiate a process of solution finding, a roadmap has been identified with as a first step, a Workshop on PAEDIATRIC UNMET MEDICAL NEEDS. The workshop is jointly organised by the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice’s (EFGCP) Children’s Medicines Working Party and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industry and Associations (EFPIA) in Amsterdam on December 12, 2019
