The role of IAPO members in European research projects

Monday, 26 September 2016

IAPO is part of Get Real, a multi-stakeholder research project of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) that aims to investigate how real-world evidence can be effectively used in the drug development process.

Within the research consortium, IAPO is carrying out research on patients’ perspectives and views of real world evidence by collecting and analysing both primary and secondary data. IAPO’s members have been crucial in helping us collect relevant data by actively participating in the survey and focus groups we held throughout 2016.

With regard to the focus groups, we asked the European Lung Foundation (ELF) to help us identify potential participants who could be interested in taking part in this specific research activity. ELF recruited fifteen participants amongst the patient ambassadors who had completed the ELF-run EPAP module “Supporting research and development”.
