Transferability of trial results to health care

2. Discussion forum on assessing benefit in health care organized by the German health research council [Gesundheitsforschungsrat (GFR)] and IQWiG on 21 October 2008 in Berlin.

I. Introduction to the problem

Main issues: Can trial results be transferred to clinical routine? What factors influence the transfer? If the trial results are not transferred, what effect does this have on clinical routine?

III. How benefit assessments and decisions are affected (discussion)

Main issues: What action should be taken in assessing benefit in health care when the external validity of trial results has received a negative assessment? If there is no transfer, does this have an impact on decisions in the health care system (Federal Joint Committee, G-BA)?
