10.3 PBAC requested research report
The PBAC may request a targeted research on one or more aspects of a PBS-listed medicine or class of medicines.
These targeted research reports are conducted in a collaborative and consultative manner, following similar processes to post-market reviews. They usually have a narrow or single focus such as examination of a medicine’s utilisation, clinical effectiveness following release of new evidence, or determining the cost-effectiveness of a listed medicine in a specific group of people. This research may inform further PBAC decision making and/or inform the need for a broader and more comprehensive post-market review.
