The European Brain Council is pleased to invite you for the upcoming Value of Treatment for Brain Disorders Research Project “Case studies on Rare Diseases and Mental Disorders” Virtual Synthesis Meeting to be held on 8 June 2021 at 13:00-17:30.
The Value of Treatment (VOT) is a health economics and outcomes research project addressing all brain disorders, conceptualized in 2015 by the European Brain Council. The project’s objective is to come up with recommendations to optimize patient care pathways and rationalize costs from a societal and healthcare perspective.
In 2017, the conclusions of the 1st round of VOT highlighted the need for more research, early, diagnosis and intervention, integrated seamless care and access to the best treatments available. In 2019, in the continuity of these conclusions and in order for the research to dig deeper into the treatment gaps, a second round (VOT2) on new therapeutic areas was launched; focusing on rare diseases Ataxia, Dystonia and Phenylketonuria (PKU) and mental disorders Anorexia Nervosa, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder.
The findings will be presented during a Synthesis Meeting on 8 June 2021. Discussions with policymakers, innovators, academia and industry, medical professionals and patient organisations will examine the most critical issues in brain diseases in Europe.
