The Myth of Average: Why Individual Patient Differences Matter
November 30, 8am - 5pm
Omni Shoreham, Washington, DC
How can comparative effectiveness research (CER) be conducted so that we understand which patients are likely to respond to what therapies? How do we implement CER that balances population-based research findings with decision making at the individual patient level? Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute Executive Director Dr. Joe Selby and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Chief Medical Officer Dr. Patrick Conway will discuss how their organizations are approaching these critical issues, and they’ll share their own perspectives as physicians.
