KCE Reports 340 (2021)
This process note aims at providing guidance on how to involve patients at various stages of a research process. It follows the publication of the Position Paper on Patient Involvement in KCE research in 2019 (KCE Report 320). The process note describes potential barriers and proposes practical solutions to help researchers to actively involve patients in their research projects.
This process note is accompanied by a practical guide of animation techniques that may help to involve patients in a practical, effective and pleasant way. These techniques could also be used with other target groups.
Both of these publications are living documents: they will be updated based on the future experiences of KCE researchers when involving patients.
