Project Title Engaging patient and public partners in a scoping review on the practice and science of James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnerships
Funding Duration 2019-2020
Award Value $10,000
Proposed Method/Science Qualitative – Scoping Review of Academic and Grey Literature
Project Summary There are clear evidence-based benefits to engaging patients and the public in health research priority setting. This scoping review of academic and grey literature will produce evidence intended to describe how the James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnerships process has been implemented in health research to support decision-making in the conduct and reporting of patient and public engagement activities and priority-setting. Patient partners and representatives from the James Lind Alliance will be meaningfully engaged throughout the various stages in the research process.
Anticipated Impact Findings of the scoping review will provide a high-quality evidence base to support decision-making in the conduct and reporting of Patient & Public Engagement (PPE) activities and priority-setting, reveal strengths and limitations of the James Lind Alliance (JLA) process and identify gaps and areas for future research. Results of the evaluation of the proposed patient engagement (PE) strategy may advance the science of how to meaningfully engage patients and stakeholders in knowledge synthesis.
