Patient and Citizen Involvement

Welcome to the HTAi Interest Group on Patient and Citizen Involvement in HTA (PCIG)

We are pleased to announce that the medicines and non-medicines patient submission templates have now been translated into French. We would like to thank Haute Autorit de Sant (HAS), the French national HTA body for their work in adapting and translating these materials and for making them available to the community. As part of this work, HAS has also translated the HTAi Values and Quality Standards for Patient Involvement in HTA and this is also available for the community to use. We are always keen to hear your feedback as you use these materials, so please let let us know how you use and adapt these materials.

Vision: Patient and citizen perspectives improve HTA

PCIG Webinar to INAHTA

In May 2017, the Patient & Citizen Involvement Group presented an overview of their experiences with patient involvement to the membership of INAHTA. In this webinar, the experiences of two HTA agencies who have used the interest group resources are presented, along with an overview of the work of the interest groups and the desire for a collaborative approach to patient involvement.
