AbstractHealth technology assessment has predominantly been carried out by scientific and health policy experts, but the involvement of users is becoming increasingly important. At present, robust examples of the integration of lay knowledge in health technology assessment are limited, but examination of examples in other fields of health policy decision making can provide important pointers for the development of valid methodologies.
