HTA Review - Expression of Interest for Deep-dives with the Reference Committee

Closed 1 Sep 2023

Opened 16 May 2023


Expressions of interest for participating in a deep-dive with the Reference Committee for the HTA Review.

Throughout the review the Reference Committee would like to have direct discussions with stakeholders who have in-depth knowledge or understanding on topics or issues highly relevant to the review. These deep-dives will allow the Reference Committee to unpack the more complex topics to ensure the review is based on a thorough and nuanced understanding of the issues, challenges and opportunities for HTA policy and methods.

Deep-dives could take the form of in-person discussions or video-conference discussions as agreed by the Reference Committee and will be held during scheduled Reference Committee meetings.

See the HTA Review terms of reference for further details including areas under consideration by the HTA Review.

All stakeholders are welcome to put forward an expression of interest, however as the Reference Committee has a limited number of available meetings, this process will target stakeholders with in-depth knowledge or understanding on a topic or issue highly relevant to the review, including (but not limited to):

  • Patients and consumers
  • HTA experts
  • Parallel policy reform areas
  • International counterparts
  • Clinical and academic groups
  • Industry

Expressions of interest and topics will be considered by the Reference Committee. Stakeholders agreed by the Reference Committee will be contacted directly through email. For individuals and groups that register interest who the Reference Committee is unable to meet with through this process, there will be further opportunities to input into the HTA Review through Consultation 2.
