The Patient Citizen Interest Group (PCIG) Patient Preferences Project Sub-Committee has taken on several projects looking at the role of patient preference studies in Health Technology Assessment. This working group will be developing educational/awareness materials focused on:
- What patient preferences are and what they are not
- How/when to apply patient preference in HTA decision-making and its impact on HTA
In addition, the group plans to explore a pilot case study project with an HTA body.
Due to a member’s retirement, the group is looking for a new member with HTA experience/perspective, either currently working at an HTA body or having had direct, recent experience at an HTA body.
The multidisciplinary group meets approximately 8-10 times per year for 1 hour, virtually, with communication by email between meetings to develop documents, develop ideas and gather perspectives.
If you are interested in joining this group, please email Barry Liden ([email protected]) or Simon Fifer ([email protected]) PCIG Patient Preferences Sub-Committee Co-Leads with a document indicating:
- Name and contact details
- Current role
- How you have been engaged in patient preference studies for HTA
- Your interest in this working group
This document should be no more than 3 paragraphs long.
The deadline for applications is October 15, 2021. The successful applicant will be notified by November 5, 2021.
