In HTA the term is often used for two different activities which complement each other: (1) patient participation (two way communication with patients including patient input such as taking Consumer Comments and enabling patients to take part in HTAs, to enable committees and patients to learn from each other and solve problems before, during and after an HTA); (2) research into patient aspects (patient-based evidence from primary or secondary research into patients’ experience, preferences and perspectives using robust, scientific methodology).
