What Stakeholders Think About CER: Now in a Booklet and at a Conference Near You

June 25, 2013

When you say “CER,” what are people thinking? The findings from NPC’s annual survey of health care stakeholders and their opinions of comparative effectiveness research and the environment for decision-making are now available in a new booklet (print and online as a PDF, along with an archived webinar). According to the survey results, stakeholders have growing expectations for the use of CER as a tool for improving health care decision-making. Their views also have changed from previous years in terms of which organizations were expected to play a significant role in specific aspects of CER, such as research priorities, methods and standards.

The survey’s findings further detail where stakeholders expect CER to go within the next 3-5 years, and what organizations they expect to lead each aspect of funding and conducting the research.

NPC research staff are presenting the survey results at two meetings this week. Health Research Services Director Kimberly Westrich will deliver remarks tomorrow at the Drug Information Association Annual Meeting in Boston, and Research Associate Adam Lustig presented a poster at the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
