Consultation on EUnetHTA Core Health Technology Assessment….

….relating to Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) versus guaiac-based fecal occult blood test (FOBT) for colorectal cancer screening.  This is the first Core HTA produced within the EUnetHTA Joint Action 2 Work Package 4 and the consultation is open until March 31 2014.

From EUnetHTA:
“The aim of this consultation is to obtain feedback on the validity of the core HTA for its intended primary use.

A Core HTA is an extensive package of HTA information intended to serve as an information base for the production of local (e.g. national or regional) HTAs. Most information in the core HTA is presented as “result cards”, each of which contains one or few research question(s) and answer(s) to the question(s). The cards are produced and presented in a structure of nine domains (e.g. effectiveness or ethics), each providing an overview of the technology from a specific perspective.”

The HTA and consultation documents are available here.
