The Importance of Flu Vaccination for Patients with Chronic Diseases
Dec. 6, 2019 - The National Health Council and National Minority Quality Forum’s Center for Sustainable Health Care Quality and Equity present a National Influenza Vaccination Week Educational Webinar. Promoting flu vaccination among those with serious health conditions along with their caregivers can be life saving. This webinar will discuss the increased risk that individuals with chronic health conditions often face with the flu infection, review current information about the flu season, and the overall importance of the vaccine. It's not too late to get your flu shot!
This webinar is sponsored by the Center for Sustainable Health Care Quality and Equity (SHC), a part of the National Minority Quality Forum. SHC has been promoting increased influenza immunization and equity to protect the health of underserved populations.

The Sentinel System— An Overview of FDA’s Tools for Assessing Medical Product Safety and Gathering Real-World Evidence
August 21, 2019 - This webinar provides an overview of Sentinel’s growing capabilities and value in regulatory decision-making. Sentinel enhances the FDA’s ability to proactively monitor the safety of medical products after they have reached the market and complements the Agency’s existing spontaneous reporting systems. Particular focus is on Sentinel's role in safety surveillance and use of real-world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE). The webinar also highlights the efforts and objectives of a patient representative-led stakeholder engagement work group that developed tailored messages for diverse audiences on the broadened uses of Sentinel.
July 11, 2019 - The webinar was in conjunction with the release of the NHC’s Rubric to Capture the Patient Voice the same day. The Rubric is a tool that the patient community or any other health care stakeholder can use to evaluate attributes of patient centeredness and to guide them on meaningful patient engagement throughout any activity they might undertake.
COA Series: What is the Difference Between Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) and Patient-Reported Outcomes?
June 10, 2019 - This webinar featured Laurie Burke, MPH, Founder of the LORA Group, LLC.
May 14, 2019 - This webinar featured Dory Kranz, President & CEO of the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. In this webinar, you will learn about a case study of the process that a patient advocacy group goes through as they develop a patient reported outcome (PRO) measure.
COA Series: Measuring Patient Experiences: Distinguishing Between Patient-Reported Outcomes and Patient Preferences
April 18, 2019 - This webinar featured Pauline McNulty and Bennett Levitan of Johnson & Johnson. In this webinar you will learn about the differences between patient-reported outcomes and patient preferences. Patient-reported outcomes or PROs provide insights on how patients feel and function in their everyday lives. Patient preferences, on the other hand, reflect what patients choose when presented with different options (e.g., treatment attributes, desired outcomes).

Dec. 7, 2018 - In patient-centered research and care, we focus on the outcomes most important to patients. Often, patients tell us that what is most important to them is how they feel and how well they function in their everyday lives. To capture data on these outcomes in clinical trials, measures must first be developed. This webinar introduces participants to a document, the Roadmap, developed by the Clinical Outcome Assessment (COA) team at the Food and Drug Administration. The Roadmap helps researchers develop tools that measure outcomes that matter most to patients.
Nov. 7, 2018 - In patient-centered research and care, we focus on the outcomes most important to patients. Often, patients tell us that what is most important to them is how they feel and how well they function in their everyday lives. These outcomes are referred to in research as patient-reported outcomes or PROs. So, what is the difference between a patient-centered outcome and a patient-reported outcome? Are they the same? The answer is: No, they are not the same! In this webinar, presented by Dr. Eleanor Perfetto, you will learn about the difference between patient-centered outcomes and patient-reported outcomes, and why we need patient-centered PROs in research and care.
The NHC hosted a webinar on June 26, 2018 with top value-based insurance-design expert Dr. A. Mark Fendrick. The one-hour webinar focused on a recent study that examines how current IRS policy on high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) impacts Americans living with chronic conditions. Dr. Fendrick presented findings of the study and participated in an audience question-and-answer session. This webinar was sponsored by the National Pharmaceutical Council. Dr. Mark Fendrick is the Director, University of Michigan Center for Value-Based Insurance Design and a Professor of Internal Medicine in the School of Medicine and a Professor of Health Management and Policy in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.
