29 June – 10 September 2012
- choice of comparator
- composite endpoints
- surrogate endpoints, and
3 September – 31 October 2012

Objective of the Guidelines
Methodological Guidelines for Rapid Relative Effectiveness Assessment (REA) of Pharmaceuticals are guidelines on methodological challenges that are encountered by health technology assessment (HTA) assessors while performing a rapid relative effectiveness assessment of pharmaceuticals. The primary aim of the guidelines is to help the assessors interpret and process the data that are presented to them as part of a REA.
