2017: The IQWiG Methods in an International Context

The first IQWiG methods paper (version 1.0) was published on March 1, 2005. Since then the IQWiG methods have been regularly updated. Version 5.0 is planned to be published in July 2017. A number of methodological issues have been discussed during the IQWiG in Dialogue events since 2008. The 10th anniversary event of IQWiG in Dialogue 2017 puts the IQWiG methods in an international context. Several international HTA organizations will introduce their own methods guides and important methodological issues of comparative effectiveness research can be discussed from various perspectives.
