5 Patient involvement in guidelines CPG organizations are using many different methods to involve the public in guideline development Paucity of rigorous process and impact evaluations Greater international collaboration needed to strengthen existing knowledge, address barriers Patient and public organizations need to be involved in discussions of their roles in CPG development 5 Boivin 2010 Qual Saf Health Care

11 Formed in 2003  AHRQ funding (2003-2012) 2-part impetus 1)Consumer groups should be able to: Understand and translate research findings to their constituencies Make use of best evidence in health care decision-making 2) Consumer groups need a professional society and regular networking and educational opportunities 11

12 CUE’s tasks Build a critical mass of US-based consumer advocates trained to use and communicate the essential elements of EBHC; Increase partnerships between CUE and decisionmakers; Provide online and in-person training on EBHC and critical appraisal; Provide a forum for communication and methodological consultation; Contribute to improving the quality of healthcare; and Increase awareness of, involvement in and contribution to the work of the Cochrane Collaboration and other EBHC organizations. 12

13 Build a critical mass – Web presence 13

14 Clearinghouse Advocates are asked to contribute at many levels  Research project teams  Advisory boards  Guidelines panels  FDA consumer input  Grant review committees  Cochrane:  Systematic review peer review  Plain language summaries Increase partnerships - Clearinghouse for groups seeking consumers

15 Increase partnerships - Clearinghouse for groups seeking consumers Guidelines panels 2011-2012 Amer. Acad. Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery  Improving Voice Outcomes Following Thyroid Surgery  Tonsillectomy in Children  Sudden Hearing Loss  Tympanostomy Tubes in Children  Bell’s Palsy  Tympanostomy review Amer. Coll. Chest Physicians  Lung cancer screening  Cough  Pulmonary hypertension
