The Respiratory Effectiveness Group is an investigator-led, not-for-profit research initiative that has been set up in recognition of the potential value of real-life research and the need to harness real-life evidence to inform meaningful practice guidelines, drug licensing and prescribing decisions.
Through our network of international experts in real-life respiratory research working at guideline bodies, research organisations, in primary care practice and in collaboration with pharmaceutical and medical companies, our focused Working Groups:
- Provide ethical review and registration of real-life research study protocols
- Evaluate mechanisms for integrating real-life research appropriately into clinical practice guidelines
- Engage licensing authorities to ensure real-life research is appropriately incorporated into drug licensing and post-marketing appraisal processes and into national and international health strategies
- Communicate best practice standards and provide examples of excellence in real-life research.
