Public Involvement Framework

Public Involvement in Clinical Effectiveness Processes strengthens public participation in healthcare decision-making and brings public knowledge and experience to these processes.  Clinical Effectiveness Processes include the development of National Clinical Guidelines (developing good standards) and National Clinical Audits (developing strong review practices) to drive improvements in healthcare outcomes.

This Public Involvement Framework has been developed to assist guideline development and audit governance groups to strengthen public involvement in processes.
