Format and Conduct of Consensus Development Conferences: A Multination Comparison

“The purpose of this paper is to compare the methods used in nine countries to organize and conduct consensus development conferences on scientific issues related to the delivery of medical care. Our comments focus primarily on the format and conduct of these conferences. However, we also briefly discuss the context, selection, and scope of topics; the role of evidence; and the dissemination of results. We confine our remarks on these latter topics to descriptive statements that illuminate issues relevant to a discussion of process.”
