We hope this reaches you well! It has been a while since we last reached out to the entire group. We would like to share some recent developments, events, and achievements.
Since the last newsletter one additional paper has been accepted (Hampson et al., 2022) and two papers have been submitted (Siegel et al., 2022a and Siegel et al., 2022b), summarizing the work of the censoring subteam. See the publications page for details.
We have updated the events page with our past and upcoming appearances. Here are some of the upcoming highlights where the WG will contribute:
Find details on WG speakers, dates, and session / talk titles on our events page. Please let us know of further presentations, workshops, webinars, etc that are not on the list yet! And send us slidedecks to be posted on the webpage.
Please also share slidedecks or links to other material that we can add to the events page.
The 7th EFSPI regulatory statistics workshop will again take place face-to-face in Basel this year. Check out the draft program, it is already very exciting! Stefan will again present the WG poster there in a session featuring several EFSPI / PSI special interest groups.
EMA has issued Advice to sponsors on managing the impact of the war in Ukraine on clinical trials which heavily uses the estimand framework. They call out the hypothetical estimand strategy specifically.
The EFSPI/EFPIA Estimands Implementation WG (EIWG) has published a paper Marking 2-Years of New Thinking in Clinical Trials: The Estimand Journey. The paper is well worth a read.
On June 28th & 29th we will again have full group TCs with regulators attending (you should have invites in your calendars). We plan to run these sessions as the last ones, i.e. each task force is asked to present the status of their work.
To conclude, we invite you to regularly check out our webpage: www.oncoestimand.org.
