Published on

Presentation at the 12th Annual Meeting of the HTAi (Oslo, Norway, June 15-17th, 2015).

Background
EUnetHTA, the European network for Health Technology Assessment has for about a decade comprehensively dealt with various HTA production aspects. However, dissemination of the final HTA report was yet to be addressed. In order to identify best practices in this field, a Community of Practice (CoP) was initiated with the aim of bringing together people in charge of HTA dissemination amongst EUnetHTA members.
Objectives
To describe the building process and first results of the EUnetHTA Community of Practice on dissemination.
Methods
The objective of the CoP was defined by a work-team. Potential participants were identified from all EUnetHTA Partners, and as a first step a webinar was organised to present interested participants with the concept and objective of the CoP. Subsequently, a workshop was organised to share knowledge and plan future activities.
Results
44 people from 25 agencies in 18 countries joined the CoP. Of these, 25 participated in the webinar and confirmed the utility of the CoP. The workshop brought together 17 people and resulted in identification of crucial steps in the HTA dissemination process, knowledge exchange about dissemination actions, and main topics of interest to the CoP. A series of Webinars provided by the CoP members themselves has been set up, two webinars has already been conducted, and a third is planned later this year.
Conclusion
The CoP provides a suited format for formally exchanging information about dissemination of HTA reports and establishing best practices together with peers. Best practices identified through the workshop and the webinars will be compiled in a best practice document. Further activities will be planned in the future, including the consideration of stakeholder involvement.

  17. 17. European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 17 “It has been useful to listen to experience of other HTA institutions (…) and compare that with our own. It may proof useful to incorporate the information regarding effective strategies, common elements of strategies, and discrepancies between strategies in the development/improvement of our own [dissemination] strategy. It's a form of information one takes along.”
