  4. 4. Commitment with Patient Involvement •The Spanish Ministry of Health and the RedETS recognise the need and value of active participation of patients to improve decisions in relation to HTA •Patients have unique knowledges, experiences and perspectives that can contribute in an essencial manner to HTA. • Making explicit, understanding and applying this knowledge can improve the answer given to patients' needs; • Improve democratization, transparency, responsability and sustainability in decision making.
  5. 5. Main identified challenges • Increasingly open RedETS to patient participation in its different activities. • Involve patients in all HTA reports. • Develop procedures and methodology to involve patients allowing them to make valuable contribution • Inform and train patients, HTA developers and other agents for PI
  6. 6. Facilitators of Pacient Involvement • Previous PI experiences in Evidence Based Products – Clinical Practice Guidelines: • Breastfeeding and Diabetes (Osteba) • Depression in children (Avalia-t) • Inherited Retinal Dystrofia and Lupus (SESCS) • PI methodology (IACS) – SDM Tools (AQUAS, ISCIII, SESCS...) – Evidence Based products for patients • (SESCS) • Sarcoidosis (Avalia-T) or IRD guides for patients – HTA (SESCS) • Blood glucose monitoring device • Neonatal screening – And some failures... (Prostate Cancer Genetic test, SESCS)
  7. 7. Reviewing our experience • Interviews with HTA Units directors and expert patients • HTA perspective – Overall satisfaction – Some worries: • What patients?: representativity and diversity • Lobby • Expert patients perspective – Increasing satisfaction – We must be prepared for specific contributions from patients and how to use them
  8. 8. Patient Involvement Sgtrategy 2016: PI Methodological Handbook (DRAFT on REVIEW) - Methodology: - SR - In-depth Interviews, - Delphi, - and consensus in the HTA Netwok Council - Results: - Methodological framework and tools adapted to the work of the Spanish HTA Network (expected contributions, who, how). - Proposal: Patient Involvement Strategy: Including short, medium and long term actions was discussed in the RedETS governing body in March 2017
  9. 9. Short Term: Patient Involment in 2017 The Patient Involvement Strategy for 2017: 1. Public Declaration 2. Establish procedures for patient intivation, selection and participation to RedETS activities 3. Pilot experiences: Most RedETS HTA agencies will increasingly involve patients in HTA reports, starting along 2017, to test the procedures and learn from experience. Patients will involve in: 1) protocol development (helping to define objectives and scope of the report); 2) reviewing the preliminary version of the HTA report. 3) Contributing to the patient version of the summaries
