Benefit-Risk SIG

The Benefit-Risk SIG was set up at the start of 2012 to help support those involved in this fast evolving area.

The main aims of the SIG are:

• To understand how best to apply Benefit-Risk Methodologies across the Pharmaceutical Industry
• To discuss and make recommendations on key methodological issues
• To share examples of how Benefit-Risk has been used within pharmaceutical companies
• To share external information including new developments around Benefit-Risk

Currently the SIG has subgroups working on:
• Literature review
• Points to consider for creating effects tables
• Benefit-Risk in the HTA setting (together with the HTA SIG)
• Training
• Bayesian applications in Benefit-Risk
• Benefit-Risk BLOG

If you have an interest in being involved in this SIG or have an interesting case study or experience of carrying out a structured Benefit-Risk assessment to share, please contact Alexander Schacht

  • Statistics Fundamentals for Clinical Trials for Non-Statisticians (or ‘How to speak stats in a day!’) - Dates: 14 – 14 Nov, 2017

    This is a 1-day course, aimed to introduce statistics to people who work on Clinical Trials, but who are not Statisticians. No previous knowledge of Statistics is assumed as we start right at the beginning with the basics. Many practical examples are given and the emphasis is on application and understanding rather than the equations and the technical background.
