How to Accelerate Lupus Solutions with RWD

Webinar Replay

Watch this informative webinar replay to explore lupus solutions and real-world treatment impacts through a discussion on patient aspects and the role of technology in streamlining research efficiency. Lupus is a complex disease with diverse manifestations, limited treatment options and inequitable impact on the affected population. This makes research into patient experience, treatment patterns and long-term clinical outcomes particularly challenging.

Attendees will gain insights into:

  • Key patient-relevant features that should be covered by RWD in lupus
  • The potential of RWD to improve the understanding of the patient and caregiver experience/needs and accelerate clinical research into the development of new treatment options
  • How technology can play a bigger role in enabling trial recruitment and reducing the data collection burden for patients, care teams and researchers
