Value is a concept that concerns all healthcare stakeholders.

Five Key Questions:
1. Do expensive drugs work good enough to support their price and deliver true value?
        2. How can pharmaceutical value be integrated into therapeutic decisions
        3. Can a single pharmaceutical value proposition be used for all stakeholders?
        4. How can you balance the benefits obtained from a drug therapy with the costs to obtain them?
        5. What decision-support tools can be used to promote high-value cancer drug therapy?


  • Define value-based pharmaceutical care
  • Gain an appreciation for different perceptions of value by key stakeholders in health care (providers, payers, patients, manufacturers)
  • Increase awareness of strategies and decision-support tools to increase the value of cancer drug therapy (guidelines, pathways, drug class innovator reference, scorecards, etc)
