Introduction to Linguistic Validation of Patient-Reported Outcomes

Fecha: Viernes 29 de enero de 2021, de 17:00h a 19:00h.
Ponente: Ana Sofia Correia

Seminar description

With increasing pharma, regulatory, and public interest in Real-World Evidence, the use of Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs), particularly Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs), is on the rise. They provide valuable information that can impact the validity of a clinical trial. For global clinical trials, PROs must undergo a rigorous iterative process called linguistic validation.

While medical translators often deal with patient-facing materials, namely informed consent forms and questionnaires, linguistic validation goes beyond producing accurate translations. It entails a patient-centered approach, a deep cultural understanding, and straight collaboration with the authors or in-country experts.

In this webinar, we will go through the multiple steps involved in linguistic validation to ensure that the translation conveys the same meaning as the original source content and is properly adapted to the target population.

Level: This webinar is intended for beginners.

Language: This webinar will be delivered in English.
