GIN PUBLIC: Aims and objectives
The main objective of the G-I-N PUBLIC Working Group is to promote ways to inform and involve the public in clinical guideline activity around the world. G-I-N PUBLIC offers a forum of exchange between patient and public organisations, CPG developers, and researchers. This is mainly done through our wiki website, and by holding workshops and presentations at conferences such as the G-I-N annual meeting.
Specific aims are to:
- Synthesise the evidence on effective patient and public involvement ;
- Develop standard methods on patient involvement in CPG development and implementation;
- Set an international research agenda, including how to measure and evaluate patient involvement
- Online web forum for discussion and exchange on key issues in patient and public involvement in CPG (ex. evaluation, recruitment, training, support) at www.ginppi.wetpaint.com;
The Working Group had their first meeting in the Netherlands, in October 2007. Since then they have had many teleconference meetings, and have hosted workshops and lectures at G-I-N's annual meetings in Helsinki (2008) and Lisbon (2009) (click here for the slides). In 2008 several members of the steering committee started a systematic literature review on patient and public involvement in guidelines. In August 2010 we held a preconference workshop at the 7th annual G-I-N meeting in Chicago.
