Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsRisk Communication AdComm

Meeting Date: 3/5/18-3/6/18

Meeting Details:

Day 1 - The committee will discuss the impact of pregnancy and lactation labeling information in prescription drug and biological products as modified under the Pregnancy and Lactation Labeling Rule. The Pregnancy and Lactation Labeling Rule (PLLR) was implemented in June 2015, and required changes to labeling of information in prescription drug and biological products to better communicate clinically relevant information to health care providers on risks associated with medication exposure during pregnancy and lactation. The Agency seeks input and recommendations on: how information in PLLR labeling is being perceived and used by health care providers and other stakeholders, factors that are critical to health care providers’ interpretation of the data and counseling of pregnant women on the risks and benefits of a medication, and how to convey risk information to health care providers to accurately and adequately inform risk-benefit considerations for medication use during pregnancy.

.

Meeting Details:

The committees will provide input and advice on strategies to increase the availability of naloxone products intended for use in the community. The committees will be asked to consider various options for increasing access to naloxone, weighing logistical, economic, and harm reduction aspects and whether naloxone should be co-prescribed with all or some opioid prescriptions to reduce the risk of overdose death. Because of the potential, significant costs and burdens that may be associated with naloxone co-prescribing (e.g., economic costs to consumers and health systems, adjusting to manufacturing volume growth, drug shortages), the committees will also be asked to consider the potential burdens that may be associated with naloxone co-prescribing for all or some prescription opioid patients.

Meeting Date: 11/15/18-11/15/18

Meeting Details:

On November 15, 2018, the Committee will discuss and make recommendations on the topic “Connected and Empowered Patients: e-Platforms Potentially Expanding the Definition of Scientific Evidence.” The recommendations will address how FDA can leverage patient-driven platforms, such as social media and registries, to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. Social media and other web platform enablers are facilitating the growth of virtual patient communities. Increasingly, patients and health care consumers are using these platforms to share their health experiences and seek information from other patients and consumers, rather than their health care providers alone. Novel approaches and methodologies are being used to tap into some of these platforms as potentially rich sources of patient-generated health data, which could be used as relevant and reliable real-world evidence. This meeting will help advance FDA’s objective to assure the needs, experiences, and perspectives of patients are included as part of FDA’s deliberations involving the regulation of medical devices and their use by patients. For this meeting, FDA is seeking input from the Committee and the public on whether and how FDA can harness the emerging potential of these patient platforms to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. In addition, FDA is seeking recommendations from the Committee on ways to leverage these platforms to disseminate as well as potentially collect and evaluate health information to and from patients and consumers.
