CADTH: Extending Deadline on Consultation to Increase Opportunity for Clinician Input and Feedback in CADTH pan-Canadian Oncology Drug Review Process
As requested by stakeholders, the deadline on the proposed changes to the pan-Canadian Oncology Drug Review (pCODR) program that would allow for broader clinician participation in the pCODR process has been extended to November 30, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. ET:
In the current pCODR submission process, a total of three oncologists review clinical data, provide context and develop the main conclusions of the Clinical Guidance Report. Additional clinician input and feedback beyond that of the three Clinical Guidance Panel clinician members is not presently eligible for reconsideration by the pCODR Expert Review Committee (pERC), as there is no formal process for clinicians to comment on issues specific to local decision making. In view of the current situation, CADTH is proposing to develop a mechanism that would increase opportunities for clinicians to provide input and feedback and participate in the pCODR process.
Eligible clinicians must be registered with the pCODR program, be a recognized expert in the specific tumour site as evidenced by membership with a provincial cancer agency or a national cancer organization or similar body, be an active practising clinician treating the cancer type for the drug under review and submit a declaration of conflict of interests (COI).
