Feedback sought by the pharmaceutical benefits advisory committee on technical working group reports

27 January 2009

Comment is invited on two working group reports. Please provide your comment by 31 March 2009

In late 2007, the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) established two working groups through its Economics Sub-Committee (ESC) – an Indirect Comparisons Working Group and a Surrogate to Final Outcomes Working Group.

In December 2008, PBAC received a report from each of the working groups and authorised their publication as suitable for obtaining wider comment and feedback. PBAC is particularly interested in feedback on the usefulness of the assessment frameworks described in the reports, particularly in terms of their technical merits and practicality.
