Representing a manufacturer at a Technology Appraisal Committee (TAC) meeting is a personally challenging experience on which a large amount rides when the ICER is close to the threshold. The manufacturer performance can make the difference between a yes or a no. Honing your soft skills and manner of presentation matters as much in this environment as the content of your answer. Additionally, the NICE process has recently changed meaning that greater engagement is now required with technical teams before going to the committee meeting stage.
BresMed is running this interactive workshop, which draws on our experience of supporting over 100 NICE submissions and representing manufacturers at multiple technical engagements and TAC meetings, in partnership with soft skills expert Berkeley Greenwood from Decideum. Our experts will take attendees through:
