NICE provides first scientific advice on patient preference study design

NICE has provided its first piece of advice on the design of a patient preference study. It aims to encourage more companies to seek its advice on the development of these studies which are designed to capture patients’ views so they can be used in the clinical development programmes for new treatments.

The pilot with Novartis looked at a patient preference study for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

NICE anticipates that its advice will guide early evidence generation, helping to transform study design and improve the quality of current processes.
