Health care providers know that relying on opioids alone can be ineffective at treating chronic non-cancer pain and carries substantial risk. In search of the best multifaceted approach, CADTH will hold a webinar on the current evidence on physical activity for chronic, non-cancer pain. Register for the webinar in advance, taking place on September 23, 2020.

Health Canada and CADTH recently announced the intent to co-develop an action plan to optimize the process for systematically using and integrating real-world evidence (RWE) into both regulatory and reimbursement decision-making in Canada. When implemented, this will have a significant impact on how drugs are approved and paid for in Canada. In a new article in Healthcare Policy, authors from CADTH and Health Canada highlight the key opportunities, barriers, and future directions related to the use of RWE throughout the life cycle of drugs in Canada.
