Abstract/Summary Steven Wooding will talk about the importance of evaluating the outcomes of medical research - the different roles evaluation can play: advocacy, accountability and analysis; alongside the challenges of understanding a process that may take 20 years to develop to fruition. He will discuss a number of recent studies he has been involved in including Project Retrosight - a three country, 29 case study evaluation of biomedical research in cardiovascular medicine over 15-20 years; the RAISS tool - a questionnaire that has an average completion time of under an hour yet collects information on 250 distinct impacts of biomedical research and 'What's it worth?' a study that came up with a number for the economic impact of medical research investment
