Evidence and the Individual Patient: Understanding Heterogeneous Treatment Effects for Patient-Centered Care

About this Event

Join us on May 31, 2018 for a conference on heterogeneity of treatment effects.


This conference, convened by the National Academy of Medicine and the Predictive Analytics and Comparative Effectiveness (PACE) Center at Tufts Medical Center, will explore the inherent limitations of using group data to guide treatment decisions for individuals. Topics will include examining HTE as it pertains to personalized decision-making and precision medicine, modifying care in light of more personalized evidence, and identifying the highest policy and research priorities to facilitate translation and dissemination of these methods. This conference will take a broad view of personalized/precision medicine that seeks to take into account the full gamut of patient-level variation (i.e. not just genetic/pharmacogenetic variation). Conference participants will include thought leaders and stakeholders who are developing and promulgating methods for more individualized evidence from academic, government and regulatory sectors. This conference is funded through two Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Awards: a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (1900-TMC) and the Predictive Analytics Resource Center (SA.Tufts.PARC.OCSCO.2018.01.25).

In-person attendance for this conference is invite-only due to space restrictions, but we invite you to join us via live webcast.
