HTA Agency Template, to collate patient and citizen experience
Add your agency to the document by completing and submitting this template. The PCIG is collating information on how HTA agencies involve patients and the public in their work. The Working Group recognises that agencies take a variety of different approaches to engagement, but believes we can all learn from each other’s work. This is a template to enable agencies to contribute. Available as a Word doc.
