    An ad hoc committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will plan and conduct a three-part workshop series to be held over the course of a two-year period. As part of FDA's continued focus on building a national governance system for evidence generation, the proposed focus of these workshops will be on the generation and utilization of real-world evidence to evaluate efficacy, effectiveness, tolerability, and safety for both review of new indications and postapproval studies. These workshops would include presentations and perspectives from thought and knowledge leaders representing a range of disciplines, including but not limited to federal regulatory and funding agencies, clinical and academic medicine and research, medical professional organizations, the regulated biopharmaceutical industry, patients and patient-focused and disease-advocacy organizations, payers, consumer organizations, health systems, and other interested stakeholders that represent the myriad views of those involved in drug, biologic, and device discovery, development, translation, and regulation. The workshop audiences are expected to be similarly diverse, and they will have opportunities to engage in discussion during the workshops.
