INAHTA Survey on Involvement of consumers in HTA (2010)

In 2005 INAHTA members were surveyed to obtain information on what they did and what they avoided in involving consumers in the HTA process.  The term ‘consumers’ was taken to include patients, carers, long - term users of services, organizations representing consumers’ interests, and members of the public.  The survey findings are presented in a report which is available on the INAHTA website and in an IJTAHC article.

In 2010 a follow - up survey was undertaken.  The intention was to obtain information on whether member agencies had changed their approaches in involving consumers in HTA since the earlier survey. Click here for results
