At the request of the EUnetHTA Executive Board, a cross-work package (WP) task group on the involvement of Health Care Providers (HCP) and Patients & Consumers (P&C) was established in Fall 2017. The task group includes representatives from WP1, WP2, WP4, and WP5. The task group is operational in nature and the scope is involvement of P&C/HCP at the project level.
As a result of this collaboration, the document on “Healthcare Professional Involvement in Relative Effectiveness Assessments” is now published and available for access. The document describes the process regarding HCP input in Relative Effectiveness Assessments (REAs, also called Joint and Collaborative Assessments) within JA3, and is primarily intended for those who design and conduct such assessments. It may also be informative for a wider audience of stakeholders such as healthcare professionals, patients, payers, industry and regulatory agencies.
