Priority-Setting for Comparative Effectiveness Research: A Review of Key Elements
This white paper, presented by Partnership to Improve Patient Care (PIPC), describes key elements, identified by researchers and others, for a priority-setting process that the public understands and accepts.
The paper highlights five elements that are to be considered by all CER organisations. They include; transparency and openness, broad stakeholder participation, a range of input opportunities from patients and consumers, clinical input and guidance throughout the process and systematic input by decision-makers of information received.
It states that as the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and other agency leadership moves forward in the priority-setting process, previous efforts and reviews signify the need for a systematic approach to the selection of research topics that offer a clear rationale for the inclusion or exclusion of topics.
