Real World Evidence Collaborative Partnerships Strategy


( Last Updated : October 5, 2022)

CADTH recognizes the importance of developing strong relationships with key stakeholders and increasing coordination with other pan-Canadian health organizations to optimize the use of real-world evidence to support decision-making about care for rare diseases. 

With support and guidance from Health Canada and multiple pan-Canadian stakeholders on the  Real-World Evidence Steering Committee, CADTH is working to both increase and enhance communication and collaboration to better meet the  needs of decision-makers. 

As part of this work, CADTH is participating in national and international real-world evidence and rare disease initiatives and in collaborative “learning by doing” projects.
