Upcoming Webinar to Examine Linguistic Validation of Clinical Outcomes Assessments (COAs) and Electronic Clinical Outcomes Assessments (eCOA)

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 21, 2015) - On Tuesday, November 3, 2015, Xtalks will host a complimentary webinar featuring Helen Anderson, Manager for ICON Language Services and Diane Wild, industry consultant, as the presenters.

Since publication of ISPOR guidance in 2005 (Wild et al), the standard process for the linguistic validation of Clinical Outcomes Assessments (COAs) has become widely known and accepted. However, the ISPOR guidance is now 10 years old and it was developed only for patient reported outcomes (PROs) as opposed to clinical reported outcomes (CLINROs) and performance based measures. In addition it did not include any reference to ePROs. This webinar will review the ISPOR guidance in relation to changes over the past 10 years in the COA environment and describe some of the current issues, methodological challenges and solutions in this ever changing field.

Key Insights:

  • Discover what Linguistic Validation is and why it is important
  • Review ISPOR guidance in relation to developments in (e)COA landscape over the last decade
  • Focus on methodological challenges presented by different types of (e)COAs, audiences and platforms
  • Discuss potential next steps in finding solutions to these challenges
